1. Make sure this openStack is in your first CARD's script.

2. You (or another open stack) may have done something unusual.
I'm not 100% convinced you've found the problem yet.
There are a few inconsistent details in your message,
plus it seems that LC did not pinpoint the offending code line?

3. But the home.livecodescript code could be more robust.
(Always ensure a target and owner exist before accessing properties.)
You could QA report that as a possible IDE bug.

Meanwhile, don't pass openStack and see if you still get an error!
