Thanks Scott. Tried that and the owner is empty whether I'm creating a
main stack or a substack. Once again, it doesn't end up that way, just
within the scope of a front script openStack/newStack handler.
Maybe this is a change in how stacks are created depending on which LC
version? These tests were done using LC 5.5.4.
