Error saving standalone -- revisited yet again

I'm not using MetaCard (I don't have a license for that, and have never 
even tried it), and I never did anything to add a nonempty resource 
fork to my stack (technically, all files on an HFS filesystem have a 
resource fork, but they are typically empty).

ls -l <stack-file.rev>/rsrc shows a resource fork with a zero length, 
so that cannot be it.
