This is the right thing -- saving under an alternative name.

What you may need to do if you want to keep playing around with 1.3.4 -- 
and it best to have the mindset that you are playing around, since all 
of your work may end up being unusable -- is to wipe out the styles from 
the old document -- use the little broom icons next to Paragraph and 
Character styles widgets in Properties. Then you can try to duplicate 
what you want using the 1.3.4 methods rather than trying to get 1.3.4 to 
translate 1.3.3.x styles.
