I figured Richard is still using Metacard most of the time & hence the
good track record. You are lucky indeed.

FWIW when you do get a corrupted stack you will see an error dialog
"There was a problem opening that stack: stack is corrupted, check for
~ backup file".
This happens even with messages locked- you can't even open the stack

Which is why I think there must be a problem with Rev's save routines.
These corrupted stacks have occurred on various different OS X
installations with different hard disks, different CPUs, different OS
versions, etc. No OS crashes or Revolution.app crashes have preceded
the corrupted stack either.
