I think you're doing nothing wrong. I believe you have encountered Bug 
2138 (see http://support.runrev.com/bugdatabase/show_bug.cgi?id=2138 )

I submitted this as an enhancement request because I encountered it only 
in the context of Dreamcard Player - though I believe it happens any 
time you double-click a stack in Windows (it's hard for me to be sure 
because I've finished with multiple versions of Dreamcard and the Player 
installed, so I'm unsure just which is being used). In general, this is 
something I never do, but tried when I saw your email; I always either 
run inside the IDE, or build a standalone executable.

Could you please add an enclosure describing what you see; it may be 
appropriate to change it to a "bug" rather than an "enhancement" and up 
the priority.
