Ben,

I'm not sure what's going on at this point. As I was trying to duplicate the problem with a sample stack, I was actually having to reinstall this build of LC several times. As I said, it appeared to be self-destructing somehow. The app bundle was actually becoming damaged to the point that it would no longer launch. But somewhere along the way, the problem stopped happening. I had just reinstalled LC and proceeded to open a stack and start working and suddenly no longer had any problems. No idea what was causing it. I'm using the same stack now that I was using when I first experienced the issue.

So I guess I'll just keep an eye on it and see what happens over the next couple days. Maybe it was just some weird glitch in my installation.

Thanks,
Chris
