So we need to try and work out what is causing the load of a stack with 
the same name of that in memory (my hunch is that there is a filename 
reference to a stack somewhere, which is being triggered, and reloading 
the stack which has just been saved-as from it original location).

If you:

   edit script of stack "revbackscriptlibrary"

Find the `reloadStack` handler and then add:

   put the executionContexts

At the very top of the handler - then you should get the backtrace of 
what handlers are executing at the point the reloadStack message is sent 
which should help pinpoint the culprit.
