ehmm, Bill wanted to use a "real" applescript and NOT "do something as 
from WITHIN his standalone...

Which would not really make sense, i think ;-)

Hi Bill,

quick guess:

do you really have a script called "quit" somewhere in the stackscript
or any place that is accesible to "everyone"?

I have not tried yet, but i think the stackscript would be the best 
for scripts to be called by (external) applescripts...

Try this one in the stackscript:

on goodbye
end goodbye

And then

tell ...
     do script "goodbye"
end tell

Please tell me if that works ;-)
