Palette command problem

Interesting!

The example in the Dictionary Entry for 'palette' is:

palette stack "Tools"

so there is no reason why Richmond's original code should not work.

Here on OSX 10.9.5 LC 8.0.1 rc 1 if I open a 'topLevel' stack and in
the message box:

palette stack "guineapig"

the stack is palettised. But if I put this in the message box:

put the style of stack "guineapig"

the result is: topLevel ??

If I revert the stack back to topLevel and in the message box:

set the style of stack "guineapig" to palette

it works, and if I then:

put the style of stack "guineapig"

the result is: palette

Something definitely not right. Anyone else seeing the command

palette stack "yourNameHere"

not working as Richmond is experiencing on Linux?? (I assume). Or have
it work but not reported correctly when you:

put the style of stack "yourNameHere"

Richmond, can you get the 'palette' command to work from the message
box or elsewhere?
