I guess the basic explanation I can give is that
Rev owns globals, the stacks do not when stacks are run in the development
environment.

Defining a global in stack "testMe", then removing the stack from memory
does not affect the global variable.

Normally, you would do the following in a handler

on openstack
   global gTimeStarted
   put the seconds into gTimeStarted
end openstack

OR

on openstack
put the seconds into $TimeStarted
end openstack
--variables with '$' are automatically Rev globals
