Sarah had this problem not long ago (see bug 3806) and after  
discussion with Jacque and me came up with this:

Printing on Rev takes on the name of the stack as the name of the

quotes around that.

Sarah's particular situation was the preview, so you might run across  
other interesting features in file saving.
