Now that you have that worked out...I wouldn't use an idle handler to 
close a stack though. It's going to try to close that stack dozens of 
times per second. Maybe you've checked for that now. I didn't see it in 
the sample you posted.

Suppose you put a handler into your backscript like this:

on closeTheStack pStack
  close stack pStack
end closeTheStack

And then when another substack opens, you just:

  send "closeTheStack tStackName" to stack "myLibrary" in 1

Seems more efficient.
