Stacks not removed from memory?

I had intended to respond to this, but got busy with other things. 

I have seen what you’re describing on all of the recent releases—9.5 - 9.6.x; i.e., a stack with destroyStack set to true, then closed, is not always removed from memory. Sometimes this has caused an infinite loop with the Save - Purge - Cancel dialog. I would report it, but I haven’t been able to come up with a reliable recipe. It’s a problem that I would like to nail down and squash.

It's been happening to me in the IDE and standalones but not every time. And even when I specifically go to another stack, set that stack to the defaultStack, that any script with “of this stack” throws an error because it thinks "this stack" it's the stack I just closed.
