It came to my mind that one of the peculiarities of the Rev IDE could 
cause a minor problem when the stack is being opened (I usually use the 
Metacard IDE for about 90% of my development):

If you first press button "Repeat" after the stack was opened - which 
should enable you to "repeat" the exercise with the same word pairs 
chosen before - then the global variable "gSelection" that stores the 
temporary word pairs will be empty, because the Rev IDE starts with a 
default setting to the "pointer tool". Therefore "send mouseup" to 
initialise variable gSelection in the openstack handler (contained in 
the script of the card) will not be sent.

The remedy for this is simple: I put "choose browse tool" directly 
before the "send mouseup" line in the openstack handler, and now the 
"repeat" button works even in the Rev IDE immediately after opening the 

I have placed the stack with the added scriptline at the same URL as before.
