Long Standing Issue with the defaultStack

Not sure at this point. When I open a sub stack called “Devices” (or any sub stack) of my main stack “Forms Generator” and I enter “put the defaultStack” in the message box, I get “Forms Generator”. 

If I put the command “put the defaultStack” in the last line of the openStack handler of stack devices, I get “Devices”. 

Right afterwards, if I enter “put the defaultStack” in the message box, I get “Forms Generator” again! 

Not entirely sure what is doing it. Had the same issue with another much simpler stack. If I went invisible to a database setup stack, then went back to the stack that called it, the defaultStack remained the database setup stack, and THAT wasn’t even a sub stack! 

Until I can figure out what is causing it, I cannot trust the defaultStack.
