destroystack/destroywindow not working?

Hi all,

I have a stack with its destroystack/destroywindow
properties set to true.

When I close it and open another stack which has a 
substack with ther same name as a substack of the 
previous stack, I get this really annoying dialog: 
"A stack with that name is already in memory..."

Shouldn't setting destroystack/destroywindow prevent this?
Or am I misunderstanding the meaning of these props?

Thanks for any insight!
