Not bringing a window to front

Thanks for the suggestion.

What I had before was "go this stack" and I guess when you do that it  
makes it the frontmost stack (I'll have to remember that for later if  
that is the behavior I want).

I make the line, " if "stack name" is not among the lines of the  
openStacks then go this stack", and that solved my problem. The window  
updates with the other commands but the window doesn't come to the  
front which is the behavior I want. If the window isn't opened at all  
it won't be among the lines of the openStacks and will not only open  
but make it the frontmost stack which is acceptable.
