Going crazy with closing a stack

I was having problems with the closeStack as well and it seems everyone
said it must be something I was doing. Well, usually it is.;-)
But once I put my close down stuff into the on shutDown and my start up
stuff into on StartUp everything now gets set and handled and works
It seems to me, since you can put closeStack in a stack and in a
substack and elsewhere that it may not be as pure as is stated. I mean
startup is just that and only goes off on startup and shutdown is just
that and only goes off on shutdown. But preOpenStack and OpenStack and
closestackrequest etc. seem to be upwardly mobile. I mean they work
best handling upstream stuff.
Of course I haven't a clue and will probably get reamed but I tell you
once I moved my stuff into the startup and shutdown handlers they
finally got called as expected and things then worked great. One
problem though, I could not debug the startup in the IDE for some
reason. I put in a break and it never showed but in the standalone
things were smooth.
