Some problems with an old stack that gets regular updates

The ability to preserve the original stack file version is a setting in
Preferences. I have that turned on too. You can either turn it off, or
override it in the Save dialog by choosing a version from the pop up button
at the bottom of the dialog.
I also looked at system prefs when trying to resolve the problem to make
sure LC was permitted to use internet or sockets or whatever Apple calls
it, I can't remember exactly. That didn't fix it though.
Like you, I also asked on the list here but no one knew the answer. I know
that's not much help.
