How is this done?  Do you change the setting, close the stack and then 
reopen it, or can it be added to a preopenstack handler?

Is this a bug or is there some reason?

I'm not so sure about the dizziness, after following this thread!

This process is way too complicated for frequent printing-editing 
cycles.  I'd still like to be able to print an address on an envelope 
in the right place.  So far, I can manage labels on windows, but if the 
paper size is changed (as for an envelope), I've had no luck getting it 
anywhere close to the right position.
