Thanks for posting this, I'm saving it for future reference.
I have exorcised the bug; but don't know where or how: I created an
empty stack and cut & pasted between the original & new stacks. I
reached a point where the stacks _appeared_ to be identical except
for the stack file name and application builder settings. At this
point I was still able to build standalones from the new stack;
however, the first couple of times I tried changing the file name and
standalone settings, I reached a state where "There was an error...."
The third time worked...mine not to reason why.
