I'm not having much luck with this at all.  I'm still getting the same
thing.  I've set the LockLoc to true and saved the stack, but when I close
and reopen the stack, the button icon picture has reverted to the original
size.  I understand from your note that I should only need to do this once,
but it doesn't seem to have any effect... Jim
