Hi Richard.

This must win the prize as the fastest reply ever. Bizarrely I added in the 
script to the main stack and it  now works.

The weird thing is it now works without the script in place. Perhaps runrev 
remembers a default location or something.

Just to clarify something. The button that clones a stack is on a stack 
that is 100 units high. If this is near the top of the screen it opens the 
cloned stack off screen. If it is in the middle, it opens on screen. Sorted 
now but still weird.
