I don't think this is a bug!

A freshly downloaded stack does ONLY "live" in memory, and has
not a "filename" yet!

And therefore has no "home" (directory)...

Internet urls are not "respected" when you try to "get the filename of 
this stack",
only local urls...

In that case i would suggest to simply check "the directory" to get
the current ehm... directory :-)
