I kind of doubt it had anything to do with the file format. There were 
an awful lot of changes to 2.7, particularly in dual-monitor support and 
graphics/images. I'd be more likely to suspect something like that.

Your stack won't be hopelessly converted to 2.7 format unless you save 
it. If you just close it without saving, it remains unchanged from before.
