DirectoryStack[] not showing top directory stack item

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

  "C:\Program Files\Wolfram Research\Mathematica\6.0"

   {"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

  /Volumes/RamDisk/D1 line                  <--this is correct

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

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

  /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 on Mac OSX 10.6.8
