This is a given. For every Pub file I'm copying and pasting, I'm doing a *Save
as*, closing the DOCX, opening the new rev and repeating.

At this point I believe its the image on this PC, in that the system hangs
on doing a warm reboot and the Win7 Start Repair procedure runs forever
without ever fixing anything. I have to yank the power cord, wait a minute
for all capacitors to drain, plug it back in and do a hard reboot.

I've issued a trouble report with the IT guy, but we'll see........
