I answered but saw that the reply address has changed, so my first reply 
will show up on the new list when it appears.

But what I said was that this is a common symptom of uncompressed HC 
stacks. If you first open the stack in HC and compress it twice, any 
Rev/LC engine will usually open it.

What changed wasn't the HC import, I don't think, but the way the engine 
deals with the imported stack. The file format changed in Rev 2.7 and 
that may have made a difference.
