The act of manually manipulating controls will reset the defaultstack. 
That makes sense, since the user will be actively working with it and 
the engine needs to direct its instructions to that stack. If your user 
doesn't change the controls, then the defaultstack doesn't have to change.

The workaround is to do what you did -- reset the defaultstack when the 
script returns to the originating handler.
