I've played with stacking using Photoshop CS4 and CS5 and had no problems. Here are some examples:

One thing I found is that you want to start with a shot focused closer than you might expect and end with one focused out a little further than you might expect. In addition, leave a little extra margin around your subject so that you can crop it a little after stacking.
