I suppose I could live with that. As it is now, switching to browse mode 
with the script editor in focus brings the defaultstack to the front 
automatically and you're set to go. I didn't set that up myself, so I 
assumed it was part of the IDE. I guess I could click the stack manually.

I wonder if any others would be affected by the change.
