As my application(s) became more complex, I also ran into topstack and 
curentcard issues. As a result, I am in the habit now of either using "of me" 
appended to every command of in a card or stack script, or else sending the 
long id of an object to a command or function that is not in the message path. 

For instance, if I am processing all the fields on a card, I put the handler in 
the card script and then use the form 'field "myField" of me' to reference each 
field. Even better, if I reference the object repeatedly I will 'put the long 
id of <object reference> of me' into a variable initially, then use the 
variable as a reference.
