IDE gone unstable with stack menu change

I have been happily developing a stack with menus. To make life simpler
with the IDE I didn't have them "Set as menubar on Mac OS" in the Menu
Builder dialog box. This put the stack menus on the screen but left the
IDE menus available for me to use and has worked great up to now.
I'm about finished with the stack so I checked the box then all hell
1. Everything shifted up when the menus were removed. I sort of
expected this and thought that I could simply move everything down
appropriately and get on with life. (BTW it would be nice if it didn't
shift everything up.) Perhaps there is a way to avoid this.
2. As I start to move things back down, dragging the fields, buttons,
etc. sometimes it works but sometimes it leaves trailing images. Also
the screen doesn't update itself properly (blank areas where there
should be something and/or editing a group shows objects not in the
group). These almost always result in the IDE crashing. Sometimes
reopening the last saved version of the stack (which looked ok before
the save) opens the window much shorter than what it should.
I'll contact RunRev about this for support but I'm in a pickle on this
and was wondering if anyone else has seen this and, even better, has a
fix for it.
I've tried on a different computer thinking my copy of Rev had suddenly
gone off but the problem persisted so I think the stack is getting
corrupted somehow. Developing on Mac OS X latest version and Rev latest
version all Transcript (i.e. no externals etc.).
