It looks like you are treating uniconifyStack / iconifyStack messages as if
they were commands, but they are only event notification messages that the
system sends and don't really do anything.
Try setting the iconic property instead.
"set the iconic of stack "whatever" to false/true"
To minimise or maximise a stack
so: (untested - and off the top of my head)
put the openstacks into tvar
put the short name of this stack into myname
repeat for each line i in tvar
if i <> myname then
set the iconic of stack i to true
might do what you want

Perhaps your script is calling itself recursively. Hence in the script
above the check for the name of the current stack
