I've run into a couple more instances of my project getting corrupted 
recently. Since I use altArchive plugin, I just have to look in my 
archive folder for the most recent non-corrupted stack. In this case 
however 3 of the archived stacks were corrupted also and I had to go 
back to the 4th archive stack. So whatever is happening, the IDE is 
continuing to work with the corrupted stack, allowing revArchive to 
make copies of it. This makes me uneasy. Just more data points if you 
are listening RR
