Unless something has changed since I last heard, the only difference 
between "start using" and "insert <script> into back" is the position in 
the backscripts layering. A stack in use is inserted before the Home 
script in the IDE (for HC compatibility,) whereas a backscript comes 
after the Home script. In a standalone, the first mainstack opened is 
"home" and I assume the layering will be the same there.

In general, unless you have same-named handlers in the home stack, 
backscripts and stacks in use are pretty much interchangeable.

I've never had a substack fail to be found so I'm not sure why yours 
aren't. But try "start using" and see if that makes a difference.
