save stack as filename failing most of the time

I have a routine that I haven't used in probably over a year to prepare for
compilation.

In it, it pulls the filename of the stack, and adds "to_compile." in a
variable.

So far, so good.

But then

save stack "mcp" as filNam

fails about three times out of four.

*something* happens, as I can see the finder window flicker, but I can't
tell what it is.

filNam is something like
/Users/hawk/Documents/dhbk/16/1612/161230/dochawkbk.161230a.to_compile.livecode

yet no such file is there.
