You appear to have done the right thing in changing both of the file 
name AND the stack name property. Perhaps it is the sequence which 
trapped you. I experimented in the following fashion:
Opened stack "testing"
Saved it as file "testing different". Name in the window title bar is 
still "testing".
Changed its name property to "testing different" which duly appeared in 
the window title bar.
Saved the stack and closed its window. "Testing.rev" still appeared in 
the Application overview.
Opened both of stack files "testing" and "testing different" with no 
warning messages troubling me. Both of them  now appear in the 
application overview and both windows are open.

Perhaps you missed a save and close at some point. I think there may 
also have been a previous bug where a title name does not reliably 
"take" unless you tab out of the field before closing the properties 
window. I have not tested for that recently; I just tab out through 
habit to avoid it.
