revIgniter and LC8

[ Hope no-one minds me cross-posting to two lists - but I think this 
could be useful for people on both lists ]

I have a couple of web sites based on revIgniter, hosted on hostM.com

They've been running happily up until today - running the default 
version in use by hostm which was (probably) the latest released version 
(i.e. 7.1.4 I think).

Today, LC8..0 was released, so hostM have changed their default version 
to that - and all my revIgniter sites now fail - see traceback info below.

hostm do provide a way to choose the version to be used, by using a 
different extension (i.e. .lc vs .lc7 vs .lc6 etc.)
However, using this with revIgniter doesn't work, because revIgniter 
then uses the same extension in all included files.

So - in case anyone else runs into this - the quick work-around is to 
add the second line below at line97 in ignite.lc, which is then renamed 
ignite.lc7
(and of course modify any links/redirects as needed ...)

     put "." & item -1 of sTempFileName into gEXT
     put ".lc" into gEXT    -- override for now !! AGT

There may be a better workaround using .htaccess - but I couldn't get 
that to work; I can't figure out what to use for the engine name.


So now that we have a workaround, what's the real problem ?  What about 
LC8.0 breaks with revIgniter ?
The traceback is as follows .. web site is http://christineirvine.co.uk

I've not been able to identify what is the failing line, or even which script it is in :-)
