I think Rev's file length problems reside in the backup routine.  Rev  
seems to run into problems when creating the backup file.  If you  
create a new stack and save it with a really long filename on OS X  
everything works as expected.

If you try to save the stack using the existing filename then you get  
"can't open stack backup file" in the result.  If you delete the file  
on disk (or rename it) and then save the stack everything works.
