Yes I have had situations where what the built in functions were returning were 
not expected, and it screwed somethign up, which is why I do not rely on them. 
It seems a bit ambiguous to me that "this stack" might return different things 
depending on where the handler resides. By moving a script from a stack handler 
to a front or backscript, this can cause problems. 

Therefore I never use those built in calls, having a drop dead accurate way to 
get what I want anyway.
