Would something like this work? There would be two versions of the 
splash-stack, one for User-A, and another for User-B, C, etc.

User-A  opens splash-stack and data-stack.
               -dataStackInUse is set to true --flag
(User-B cannot open stacks)

User-A is finished with stacks.  Closes.
               -dataStackInUse is set to false

User-B may now open splash-stack and data-stack.
              -splash-stack and data-stack are automatically copied to 
computer B.
              -dataStackInUse is set to true
(User-A cannot open stacks)

User-B is finished with stacks.  Closes. --but before closeStack, the 
following:
              -splash-stack and data-stack are automatically copied back 
to computer A.
               -dataStackInUse is set to false
