Recently I had a similar problem. Maybe this will help you, even  
though it's not exactly the same.

In the stack script of < splashStk > I put:

on closeStack
    if the environment is not "development" then
    end if
end closeStack

In the stack script of < mainStk > I put (hat tip to Jacque for the  
'go home' trick):

on closeStack
    if the environment <> "development" then
       go home
       if not (the short name of this stack contains "[name of splash  
stack]") then
          send "closeStack" to this stack
       end if
    end if
end closeStack

It seems like if your < subStk > did not have a closeStack handler, or  
passed closeStack, it might solve your problem.
