I don't know. Sorry. But I had
the Idea if there is no solution (aka no apple event gets passed 
whatever you do) Would it be possible to make a Folder with the ending 
".app", and then put an applescript in it which first starts the stack 
and then passes the file information to the stack (which also would 
resist in the ".app"-folder)
  I always thought that this should be possible to do under Mac OS X, but 
don't now about the lineup for getting it to work properly.
This could also make Applications which write to themselves possible 
(when substacks are saved as files in the ".app"-folder)

Just throwing Ideas
