Thanks, Alex, but no, I'm not seeing the Distribution Builder stack at all.
Absolutely nothing whatsoever happens - no crash, no freeze, no distribution
builder! But...

I've just thought of something, and I think I've fixed the problem. I had a
look in the Revolution 'Components' folder, and found the distribution
builder stack in the 'Tools' folder inside that. Now, the title of the stack
was 'revdistributionbuilder.rev~' (note the tilde after the 'rev' suffix.) I
changed this to a 'normal' .rev suffix, and it now works.

Now, why did that stack gain the tilde at the end of its name? I think that
Rev does this when something is partly/wrongly saved, if I remember rightly?
In this case, though, I never managed to open the distribution builder -
this was my first play with rc1 - so I don't see how it could have been
wrongly saved.

Any ideas, anyone?
