stackfileversion and locking 6.5.2

Probably unrelated, but I have noticed that text that has been produced in a PDF via their OCR tool will have hidden characters in it that will prevent me from inserting or updating records in my SQL database with that data. The SQL generates an error as though there were nothing beyond the first hidden character in the SQL statement. I just run my text through a cleaner function now to get around it, but if you are in the habit of drag/dropping text in your LC apps, it isn’t a bad idea to run all that through your own text cleaning function beforehand. I do this in the closeField handler, and have my dragDrop handler call closeField when done. That way, whether or not you copy/pasted, or dragDropped, the text will be cleaned.

well that didn't take long :-P

It turns out that there is one field in the stack -- delete the contents of
that field, and the stack opens fine in 6.5.2.

I copied the contents of the field and pasted into Pages, then deleted the
contents of the field, and the file opened fine in 6.5.2. I then pasted the
contents back in, and the stack survived.
