How to maintain window layers on Mac?

Well, in this case something else seems to be happening.   There is no go 
to the name stack.  For some odd reason the new stack is winding up behind 
it.  I even tried putting a "go to me" in the openStack handler, and that 
didn't seem to do anything.

I can't hide the background stack or move it off screen because it is 
displaying the student's name and needs to be visible in the background.

It always seemed like there should be some way to get the layer of a stack 
and a way to force a stack to the front.
