First, verify that the changes are indeed saved:  quit the IDE, then 
re-launch, then open the stack again.

If the changes that were saved are still evident, clearly we can rule 
out problems on that side of things, and focus on the standalone:

Did you quit the standalone before checking the changes?  If not, it may 
be possible that what you were seeing was a copy from memory, not fresh 
from disk.
