This one doesn't strike me as a bug. I susupect lots of developers want
their standalones to recognize other stacks. I think it would be the

To be fair, I've seen this in other apps and document types. I wish the
Finder would do some translations for us in file dialogs.
One other glitch I hit the other day. On Windows, the ".rar" extention
is a compression format, and a utility to decompress .rar files binds
all .rar files to itself. One of the document types for the .rar
extractor is ".rev" (used for "revised" compressed files.) Lately
Windows thinks all my stacks are compressed documents.
This may be something to watch for if a Windows user says, "I can't open
