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.
