I guess this is broken, as per a recent list post. While I do have the 
option set in my own preferences, I also run a little startup handler 
that resets the stackfileversion to 2.4 so that all my stacks are saved 
as legacy. So if the option isn't working for you, you can just set the 
stackfileversion in the message box before saving your stacks for now.

I guess it depends on how you work. Some people want each stack saved in 
its original format, others want it always saved to a particular format. 
It's mostly personal preference.
