Import snapshot fails in standalone

It seems strange to reply to my own question, but others may encounter 
this possible bug. The part I failed to mention before is that I am 
putting the captured image into an existing image that is part of a group. 
This works in development, but a built standalone will not display the 
captured image.

on mouseUp
  import stapshot
  put the last image into image "screenshot" --which already exists in a 
  delete the last image
end mouseUp

However, if instead of the script above, I set the name of the last image 
and add it to a new group, it works as a standalone. Is this a bug, or am 
I not using the group property correctly?

on mouseUp
  import snapshot
  set the name of the last image to "screenshot" --give the snapshot a 
  group img "screenshot"
  set the name of last group to "scrollable"
  set the vScrollBar of grp "scrollable" to true
  set the hScrollBar of grp "scrollable" to true
end mouseUp
