I had a start using in the startup script and it seemed to never get  
called. So I added a small script in front of the code that needs the  
start using stack that asked which stacks were in the start using  
queue, and if it was not listed, it ran the start using script to put  
it there. Kind of a just in time start using. That works fine and it  
has the advantage of being right where I use it.

For example:

global theStacksInUse

  if "revSOAP" is not in theStacksInUse then
     start using "revSOAP"
     get the stacksInUse
     put it into theStacksInUse
end if
