Hi Richard,

I wouldn't dream of teaching my grandmother anything in relation to eggs, but 
FWIW: the 'backup+save' button on my standard toolbar extension looks for a 
stack property "uPrefStackFormat" which I can set to indicate the preferred 
format (2.4/2.7/5.5) and sets "the stackfileversion" appropriately before 
saving the stack.  That technique lets me move around between many versions of 
LC without (too often) running into the problem you mention.
