AFAIK, there's no way to do this.  I could have sworn screen locking used to
affect whatever stack was active at the time it was called, but currently it
affects all stacks.  You might consider throwing up a text message "One
moment please..." while the cleanup happens, but I don't believe there's any
way to have just a portion of the screen locked.
