ti know 2 solutions for that problem...

1. Put this into your stack-script and folks will not find a handle
on your window to move it around :-)

on preopenstack
    set the decorations of me to ("empty")
    set the loc of me to the screenloc
end preopenstack

2. Do the snap-back :-)
(See the dox for "movestack")

Put this somewhere into your stack-script and you are prepared, too :-)

on movestack
   set the loc of this stack to the screenloc
end movestack

Check it out...
You have to see this in action to believe it... ;-)

Hope that helps...
