    Looking at the on line help for DirectoryStack it shows the following
    example:

    SetDirectory[$InstallationDirectory]
    "C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\6.0"

    DirectoryStack[]
    {"C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\6.0",
    "C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\6.0\Documentation\
    English\System\ReferencePages\Symbols", "C:\Documents and
    Settings\roger\My Documents"}

    However when I request a DirectoryStack it never shows the top item

    SetDirectory[NotebookDirectory[]]
    /Volumes/RamDisk/D1 line <--this is correct

    DirectoryStack[]
    "/Users/phillman5" <- missing new stack
    value set above

    However if I do a Directory[] I do get the top entry

    Directory[]
    /Volumes/RamDisk/D1 line

    On starting Mathematica it shows that the DirectoryStack is empty.

    Also ResetDirectory[] shows the resulting top DirectoryStack item,
    not the one popped.

    I am using Mathematica 7.0.1.0 on Mac OSX 10.6.8
