Yes, it's the shadows.

In 5, we quit and restart.  Maybe 1 time in 10, we have to do a couple of
restarts with save with strictCompilation off.

In 6, that doesn't always work.  I had to give up.  But after repeated
failed tries in 6, I was able to open in 5 on the first attempt.  I then
tried 6, and it was still shadowed.
