There is a bug in the example stack. Take a look at the  
'databaseConnect' handler in stack "Record Navigator". The handler  
attempts to create a database file based off 'the filename of this  
stack'. This will not work since stack "Record Navigator" is not a  
main stack but a sub stack and has no filename value.

Change it to 'the effective filename of this stack' and it should  
(untested) start working given that you have saved the stack to disk
