Some Stacks Won't Open in Finder in OS X?

I don't know why this is happening, but I think I can provide a 
workaround. Boot Rev and then go to the Finder and double-click the 
stack. Once Rev is running, this will open the stack within the Rev 

Another option is to make sure that the filetype & creator codes are 
set correctly. In the User contributions section of the Rev website, I 
posted an AppleScript droplet called Rev Droplet File Type Converter, 
that can do this for you.
