When I complained about the "rename file" command not working for me, 
Ken Ray said: "There might be a file name length limitation."

Ken, you were right on the money. My script merrily renamed files if 
the new names were under a 32 character limit. This was the limit 
imposed by the old Mac operating system, but it's been retained in 
the OS X version of Revolution, where it is no longer needed.

Thanks to those others who offered help. My stack will, sadly, remain 
useless until long filenames are permitted by the "rename file"
