Stack is momentarily solid white (flicker) - OSX

Is it possible to set the loc of a stack before it is opened? I have a 
template stack which I use to create clones from, so it has to be 
called on-screen in order to do the clone operation. When this goes on, 
there is a pretty unsightly flash of the stack appearing, and then 
being quickly cloned and discarded. I'd like to call that stack 
on-screen, but actually have it off-screen... is the only way to 
resolve that flashing by placing scripts in the pre-open stack of the 
stack to be opened, or can I do it somehow from the calling stack?
