Pointer tool in standalones

I have a stack set up to choose the pointer tool when being opened.  I 
want the user to be able to select, move, and resize most of the 
objects, just like they can in the IDE (lines, rectangles, etc -- I am 
trying to build a custom report editor).

This works as it should when I am running the program in the IDE, but 
when I try to run it as a standalone, I can select an object by 
rubber-banding it, but I cannot select the object by clicking on it, 
and I cannot move or resize the object at all.

Is this a bug, or is this simply not supported in standalones?  Am I 
missing something maybe?

The command I use in preOpenStack to select the pointer tool is:

choose pointer tool

The behavior is the same under Dreamcard Player.
