I don't know that I'd call it a bug, since any stack holding behavior 
definition buttons must be loaded into memory before an object can use 
those scripts, and all stacks (whether main or sub) can be addressed by 
their unique name once they're loaded.

If you can find a way to break this I'd be interested in learning, but 
alas with the limitations of loading behavior definitions the stack 
addressing shouldn't pose a problem.
