Problem with Browser Sampler Stack in Rev/Mac 2.8.1

OK, so I found a "cure" for the functioning of Rev's Browser Sampler 
Stack in Rev/Mac 2.8.1 using my Mac Mini.

When I make a standalone, nothing works - even when trying to navigate 
from one page to another. But in relation to this, I am prepared to 
believe provisionally that this stack is too big and clumsy for the 
modest machine I am using. When physical memory is in short supply for 
example, all kinds of crazy things can happen.

So I decide to make a simple stack to test the revBrowser. From RR 
Newletter Issue 26, I construct the following stack:

--THIS IS IN THE CARD SCRIPT:

local sBrowserId = ""
# Opens the browser and sets initial url and position.

command browserInit
  local tBrowserId

  put revBrowserOpen(the windowId of this stack, 
"http://www.google.com") into tBrowserId  --(all one line)

  browserEnsure tBrowserId
  put tBrowserId into sBrowserId
 
  revBrowserset sBrowserId, "rect", the rect of graphic "Browser Rect" of me
  revBrowserset sBrowserId, "scrollbars", true
end browserInit

--THIS IS IN A BUTTON:

on mouseUp
 call browserInit of this card
end mouseUp

--THIS IS THE ERROR MESSAGE I GET:

Type Handler: can't find handler
Object card id 1002
Line browserEnsure tBrowserId
Hint browserEnsure

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Please tell me theoretically whether there is anything wrong with the 
above. You might try making an identical stack yourself, especially if 
you have an Intel Mac Mini.
