Panther problems

This is a known behavior as far back as I can remember with Rev. and I 
have even seen some custom props created in stacks by the IDE that 
refer to an older version.  I am not sure why you would keep an old 2.0 
version around... but if  you really need it, just stuff it or zip it 
as a back up...

If you really need to keep 2.0 around, trying building a distribution 
of the stack, but not as a stand alone, and check the dialog to remove 
Rev custom props, then build the distribution sans any other resources 
at all. then, use this as your "original" and open it in 2.1.1 and 
save. At least in one instance this worked for me... after doing this 
the stack would boot in the latest version of REV on my system and not 
an older one , even though the older one was present and available.
