Save stacks periodically to avoid crashes?

Tom,

I can neither confirm nor deny whether Constellation's auto save and  
archive process "cleanses" or "fixes" something about the Rev IDE so  
that you have fewer crashes. I would not think so. However, I have  
very few crashes in the Rev IDE and, of course, I use Constellation  
and it's assorted Gadgets (Object Gadget, Inspection Gadget and  
Transcript Gadget).

Best,

Jerry
