Background Long IDs

I'm working on a script exporter and have the following line of code:
put the long id of background ID tObjectID of tStackLongID into
What is peculiar is that I get the following different values:
bkgnd id 1021 of stack "AutoScriptSaver"
group id 1021 of card id 1025 of stack "AutoScriptSaver"
It seems to be related to whether I have visited the card (1025 here) since
opening the stack. Is there a way to ensure that I'm getting the same
value back all the time? In another place, I'm also grabbing the long name
which has the same issue. I know that I could build it manually but am
trying to avoid that additional code if possible. If I do it manually, I'm
going to use "bkgnd id..." since I don't need to find the first card.
