Hmm. On OSX at least, I regularly open rev, and do a build from a saved 
build file, without ever opening the stack or modifying the build saved 
values. We frequently update the stack to be built over the network, and 
then just run the same builder config, without modification. Mark is 
using the same OS as me. What are you using Rob?
