Stack with the same name loop

I guess it comes down to what different people are doing with LC.

I get the erroneous "this script has been altered externally" message about
3 times a year.
I never get the "A stack with the same name as the one you are trying to
load" unless I really am opening two stacks with the same name.

In my own work I always try to work with the long ID of every control. It's
the least ambiguous thing one can do. The IDE should do the same.
