Are you sure the stack names are different?  MC/Rev looks at the name of the
stack that is displayed in the stack's titlebar (the name of the stack),
which is usually different from the filename used on the desktop.  Changing
filenames on the desktop does *not* give a stack a new name.  You can read
more in the docs under filename and stack name.
