Global Misbehaving

Hello everyone,

I have the following openStack handler in a main stack.  I use it to  
set two globals which hold paths to folders that I want to use for  
back ups and such.

on openStack
   global dataFilePath, partsFilePath
   -- Set some relative file paths
   get the fileName of this stack
   set the itemDelimiter to "/"
   delete the last item of it
   put it & "/Data/" into dataFilePath
   go to stack "Another Stack"
end openStack

Seems that when I declare the global dataFilePath in substacks, I  
just "/Data/" instead of the full path.  What gives?
