Update on defaultStack problem

I've just come across another inconsistency with this.  The QC asked me to supply a stack to demonstrated the problem so I put together a simple stack and substack for them that mimics the stacks that caused the problem, but the defaultstack is set correctly!  I'm still working on it because while the QC stack does add and delete fields, it doesn't have quite all the logic from the original stack so I'll add everything and see if I can reproduce the problem.  Maybe it's something other than adding/deleting controls and resizing the stack.
