Probably not so much a bug as a design decision. The engine seems to 
enforce mode 2 if it thinks the stack is an IDE stack. But that does 
raise the question (again) on how the LC team works on those.

I'd like to see this convention removed, and have the engine check for a 
custom property or something similar. There are cases where a stack name 
does need to start with "rev", but even if it doesn't it is going to 
throw off new users. It's an artificial legacy limitation that doesn't 
have to exist.
