Thanks, but I don't know if there's a problem there.  I was merely 
noting that the underlying mechanism is different; whether that played a 
role in my saving in the current format hasn't been determined. If I get 
some time I may go back and see if I can pin down where the errant save 
happened, but for me, even with all my older tools that use the straight 
"save" command without bothering to set the stackFileVersion, it's been 
a minor issue, and I'm not seeing complaints from others about it so I 
wouldn't consider it a priority.
