The docs say you aren't supposed to be able to set a stack ID to 
anything lower than its current one. I'm surprised you could set it to a 
negative number, you aren't supposed to be able to do that either.

"A stack's ID is equal to the ID that will be assigned to the next 
object created within that stack, so the stack ID is subject to change."

Maybe when you set it to zero, the engine pushed it back up again?
