Are you sure this is a Rev bug? I seem to recall from the original
post that the stack was transferred over ftp or some other internet
file transfer. Did you try to zip it before sending it?
I know some forms of file transfers can corrupt a file when sent over
the internet. It is far less prevalent than it used to be, but that is
why encoding was originally used. Files were converted to internet
friendly characters because internet routers were originally only
designed to pass text based files.
