Long Standing Issue with the defaultStack

Okay wrong again. The message gets sent first to the card, then the stack, then the stack behavior, then the main stack. 

But before any of that, I get a dialog asking if I want to save the stack! That is what I am trying to avoid! This was discussed before, and I thought closeStackRequest was the solution, but apparently not. I may need to do this in a front script. 

The defaultStack thing still stands though.

I have a closeStackRequest handler for instance that auto saves the stack. It never gets triggered because the closeStack message never gets sent to it!
