Hi Andreas, 
it happened that few days ago I looked through the rev site and
documentation on crashes of the IDE and damaged stacks. I experience them
quite regularly throughout the development cycle, so now I am doing up to 17
backups per day in case stack gets damaged. Now can not remember the precise
location, but it said that after the app crashes and the original stack is
damaged, look for a backup of original stack in .rev~ file. So this should
be just a copy of your original stack file created after (or before?..) the
All the best!

Subject: rev~ file extension ? 
in short: does someone know what the file extension "rev~ " 
I have the strange feeling that this file crashes my application. 
I have a setup with a main stack on several client computers and 
a storage file for pupil results on a Windows 2003 server. 
This client server solution works well in a Macintosh environment. 
However, in above setup it crashes. 
When I look into the server 2003 files, there are two files: 
I believe that Runrev catches the wrong file, because both 
have the same filename - except the extension. 
Any hints are greatly welcome! 
Kind regards
