The width and height of a stack

What is even weirder, is that if I set a breakpoint after the height or width statement in the openCard handler, whichever is first, the command completes and executes the first sizing statement but then the script crashes! If I put a breakpoint after the first sizing statement, it never reaches the breakpoint. 

I am going to try opening a copy of the stack in the latest 6.7 version and see what happens.
