Create button script won't work - why?

Make a new stack called "Test" and label the card "One".
Put a button on the card with the following script:
create button "Fred" in card "One" of stack "Test"
The compiler doesn't complain but when I click the button I get this error:
button "Button": execution error at line 2 (create: error in bad parent or background expression), char 1
The following script works:
put the defaultStack into vName -- note whatever the defaultStack is
set the defaultStack to "Test"
go to card "One"
create button "Fred"
set the defaultStack to vName -- reset the defaultStack to what it was before
Is there a way to directly create a button on a particular card in a particular stack without going to it and doing all this? The stack I want to create the button into is data stack that never gets viewed directly. In this case it will be data in the custom property of that button.
