You are right, Richard, "answer the backscripts" brings up an empty 
dialog in the standalone. But why?

It is a stack that requires a login. At first, I had the login brought 
up as a modal dialog in the preOpenStack handler of the main stack. 
What you explained makes clear why that didn't work. I figured this to 
be the reason too, so I made the dialog the main stack that brings up 
the previous main stack when a user successfully logs in.

The internet access is required in the script of the login button on 
the only card of the main stack - the 'login dialog' that is not a 
dialog anymore.

Could a preOpenStack handler prevent libraries from loading? I tried to 
add 'pass preopenstack' at the end of the handler, but that didn't 
resolve anything.
