I didn’t get any response about this problem.

I went ahead and reverted to an earlier version of my stack.

Most of the changes to restore were text. I gathered all the text from the later and earlier versions and followed Phil Davis’ excellent suggestion to use TextWrangler’s “Find differences” to see what I needed to move over.

This anomaly occured recently but doesn’t seem to affect the functionality of the stack. I’m using LC 6.3.1, but I also see it when I open that stack in a later version of LC.
