Setting directory on preOpenStack, not seeing images with relative file paths

This mainly happens in standalones, not the IDE.

Thankfully, the way I developed it allows me to do what Ken suggested  
- load one stack, set the directory, then load the next stack.  It  
seems to be working... my logic seems sound for carrying it out  
otherwise, though.

I am using Mac OS X, version 2.7.2.
