Issues with "start using stack"

Hi Sharon,

When a library acts on objects/controls in another stack, it's usual  
to refer to these objects using their long name/ID to be sure to  
address the right object: just try it :-)
This means that a param passes the long name of an object and your  
lib acts as follows: 'set the width of pObj to <value>' for instance.
Then no matter what is the defaultStack or such issues that lead to  
errors like 'No such object'.
