Yes there are potential problems in using "filename"
in fact I just hit on this yesterday. A substack has no "filename"
property. Thus if you query that property in a preOpenStack handler
in the main stack and poke it into a global, when you open a substack
it will insert empty into the global!
dynamically built paths to external files using
"gMyLocation &"/"& somefile.shtml"
just stopped working for me when the user opened a substack in my app...
I finally realized that gMyLocation was empty!
By using "the effectivefilename" which is the same for a mainstack
and any of its substacks, you will always return the same value...
and you don't have to build any workarounds for the fact that
"filename" for substacks is empty.
