Thanks for looking into it.  I found the culprit: it was the "choose 
from list" AppleScript command.  That's okay, because I don't really 
want to display a list of chapter info but merely return it to Rev, so 
not having that available doesn't bother me.

Still curious as to why that doesn't work from Rev, though.
