How many times have you found the answer right after posting the
question? This is more than once for me... Anyway, the solution was to
go to one of the stacks with the "fat" icon, do Get Info and change the
Open With... selector to Revolution, and then click the Change All
button. Even though the icons remained "fat", double-clicking now
launches my old friend Rev 2.1 under OS X. After restarting, the icons
resumed their normal appearance. Whew! Hope this saves someone else
