I've seen this before with stacks that were originally built with MC, where you had to include 
ask and answer stacks manually into the mainstack. I've also heard about these inclusions once 
or twice in LC but I'm not sure what would cause that.

 From the message box, do: put the substacks of stack "myMainStack"

If the ask/answer dialogs are there, then you can delete them:
   delete stack "answer dialog" of stack "myMainStack"
   delete stack "ask dialog" of stack "myMainStack"

Be sure to include the reference to your mainstack, since otherwise you might delete the one in 
the IDE. That's no a permanent problem but it won't solve your issue.

You might also be able to do the same thing in the project browser, but I usually use the 
message box.
