The Save command - what does it really do?

Hi Steve,

The save dialog just waits some time to give you the possibility to  
read which stacks are being saved. There is a simple wait command in  

There is a small difference between the effect of using the Save menu  
and the save command, according to the docs: "The Save menu item in  
the File menu automatically compacts the stack. However, the save  
command does not do so."
