Do you update the distribution build info with each build?
I have had occasions where I would build a standalone, test it,
revise the source stack, and build it again. I have witnessed
behavior similar to what you describe when I do a second or
subsequent build without updating the build info, even if it doesn't
change. In particular, I remove the stack name from the build list
and reselect it.
I am guessing that the Distribution builder expects to find the stack
in RAM, and when one quits Rev, starts it again, and does a build
without selecting the stack(s), it chokes.
