data loss in a standalone... a bug?

The line

>   set the custompropertyset of stack whichFile to "allDataProps"

in your script ought not to be necessary. The following statement

>  set the customproperties["allDataProps"] of stack whichFile \
>       to the customproperties["allDataProps"] of stack "dataTemplate"

should get the job done. Try commenting that out to see if it affects  
the outcome (though I confess I'm not sure how it would).

Have you checked whether the data is where it belongs before the save  
and close? You might write the contents of one of the "allDataProps"  
properties of the whichfile stack (along with a labeling string) to  
stdout just before you close it, then open the console application  
and watch what happens when you run the standalone.
