Can't find stack "Display"
The bundle had been built but the MacOS folder didn't exist.
I think the mainStack had only been hidden, not closed.

I'll try that again, but I think I tried it once and it didn't seem to

one big one has multiple files. This means it hardly ever needs 
re-building - I just put a new substack in the bundle, but when it 
does, the startup trick works well for me.

BTW none of this was meant to be criticism. The new builder is great
