Stack Bloated Suddenly

I suspect a custom property is the most likely culprit. I found recently in
some IDE stacks that cRevGeneral["script"] contained whole large scripts
which were inflating the size of the stackfiles. I'm not sure exactly where
these came from, but presumably some kind of plugin was setting it.
