Is that the whole script? It doesn't specifically start using the stack, 
so that's why the stacksinuse is empty. The "can't find stack" error 
could happen if you saved the stack in the default format. Re-save the 
stack in legacy format and try that.

As-is, you'd probably avoid the error if you checked for "is a file" 
instead of "is a stack." But since the detailed files already returned 
the stack name, that's pretty much a redundant check.
