The stacks do have the same name, but that shouldn't matter because you can
see the modification date not changing even in the finder. It seems that if
you open a Mac stack on a Mac and save it, then the date gets updated, but
if you open the same stack from the PC through an AppleTalk network, then it
doesn't update.
