Long Standing Issue with the defaultStack

I know that doing the simplest things, breathing, going down to the message box, can upset the defaultStack. I see this often when trying to change properties in open inspector(s).
My example may have been unfair to your issue, because I wound it so tightly within a single short handler. There was no room for fiddling around, by you or LC.
When one is roaming around the IDE, I think I have seen the same things you have.

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.
