That's what I do as well. Kill, then go do something else for a bit.

Reading the code that invokes this dialog (the reloadstack handler in 
revbackscriptlibrary.livecodescript) isn't much help. It's only the IDE 
that can't handle this, not the engine.

This would all be moot if the IDE used the long id of the stack instead 
of just the short name of the stack, but that would require work.

BTW - the original bug report on this is now 18 years old.
