Thanks for clarifying!

I must have had some of the above going on - some instances where the 
defaultStack was being explicitly set. With 100K+ lines of code, I even 
miss things with searches! I thought it was the waits but it must be 
waits along with code that changes the default stack. We've just been 
making all object references fully qualifies which has seem to address 
the problem, but, based on this information, I'll search the code for 
explicit instances where code changes the defaultStack.

If someone switches to another applications (so a suspendStack is 
executes and does the currently executing script get suspended?) and 
then back to a different window/stack, could that also change the 
defaultStack for the currently executing script when it resumes? It's 
just another real=world user behavior we see with people using our 
research tool.
