Hi Mark,

Do you update the distribution build info with each build?

I have had occasions where I would build a standalone, test it, 
revise the source stack, and build it again.  I have witnessed 
behavior similar to what you describe when I do a second or 
subsequent build without updating the build info, even if it doesn't 
change.  In particular, I remove the stack name from the build list 
and reselect it.

I am guessing that the Distribution builder expects to find the stack 
in RAM, and when one quits Rev, starts it again, and does a build 
without selecting the stack(s), it chokes.
