Stack with the same name loop

Hi Sean,

I just put up with it and kill LC -  I don't think we will ever have a
definitive answer or fix (prove me wrong please!) . As I say they
don't seem to eat their own Dog Food otherwise this would have been sorted
years ago.

While I'm here Somehow the problem with the drop down menus on  a second
monitor being "off screen"  to the right seemed to be  fixed in the last RC
but now the problem is back on the latest "stable" - this is one of the
biggest time wasting bugs I put up with (and that included the slowdowns)
