This is a really old bug, I remember working around it years ago. I've 
gotten so used to tabbing out of fields before I close a stack that I 
hardly ever see the problem any more. But that isn't a good solution for 
everyone.

On the other hand, I wish there were some way to get Rev to *stop* 
asking me to save. I have some utility stacks with text display fields, 
but the text is temporary and I never want it saved. But every time I 
close the stack, Rev bugs me about saving changes. I now only open those 
stacks in the MetaCard IDE, where it leaves me alone.
