It's documented that substacks can't have substacks. You're only allowed 
one layer deep: a mainstack and any number of its substacks. I don't 
think the engine even checks to see if there's anything else.

The IDE won't let you make a substack of a substack. You can try to do 
it from a script or the message box, though I never tried it. Now I know 
what happens. ;)
