Rev2.6.1 Protected Stacks Issues

Rev 2.6.1 no longer supports cloning in  protected stacks. This not only 
applies to controls like buttons or fields, but  also to stacks which is how many 
people create documents and handle  printing.

This has raised more than a few eyebrows. In its wake, it has  opened the 
issue of being able to re-lock a stack to maintain security, and a  third 
undocumented issue that simply closing a stack no longer re-instates  password 

There are three bugzilla entries which may affect  you and for which you may 
wish to vote...

- Clone command refuses to work  on password protected  stacks:

-  Restore locked state without closing the stack (passkey,  password):

-  Closing stacks does not instate password  protection:
