To avoid the problem of other windows layering between the windows of your
stack, you can set the raisewindows to true.
The other half of the question, dunno except after your move, go to the
stack you want to be number 2, then go back to the stack you want to be
number 1. Or set window 2 to pallette so that its always on top no matter
which of your app windows are active at the time.
