Yes, I understand about inheritance in the substacks that I create
and add to the application. But I was surprised by spontaneous
inheritance by dialog stacks that did not originate with me and that
were being used freely by the IDE --especially when they carried over
without problem to the OS X build. I tried very briefly today to get
this to happen on purpose, but was not successful. I can't find any
documentation yet and will continue to read and experiment.
