Can you not get to it via the Property Inspector and change its name ?
is it possible that you have set the name to empty ?
(if a name is empty, getting its name yields its ID instead !!) so
you should be able to use
set the name of stack id 33 to "somename"
Do you know (or can you get) the id for the stack ? and then use that
to set its name ?
(read the "ID property" page in the Dictionary carefully before
trying this. Then read it again)
