Move your preOpenStack from the stack script to script of card 1. 
What is happening is the result of message passing. In other words, 
it the proper way the system works. If your preOpenStack is on first 
card of the mainstack, it will execute only for the mainstack. An 
alternative could be to check in the preOpenStack if the active stack 
is the mainstack but it is simpler to move that handler.
