relative path to stack in send

None of these seem to work:

    send "gimmeSomeOThatStuff" to stack "../Gurobaru stack.rev"
    send "gimmeSomeOThatStuff" to stack "file:../Gurobaru stack.rev"
    send "gimmeSomeOThatStuff" to stack URL "file:../Gurobaru stack.rev"

This works, but only if Gurobaru stack is already open:

    send "gimmeSomeOThatStuff" to stack "Gurobaru stack"

This works, even if Gurobaru stack is not open.

Does send to another stack require absolute paths when the target stack
is not open? Is there no way to use relative paths?
