Where's the file?

This strikes me as odd. I frequently use text files as containers of
data (prefs, and the like) in my stacks. On openStack, I put the path
of the folder containing the stack into a global so I can use it
later. Not a problem when I'm running as a stack...text files are
created and modified as expected during use (I use get/put URL).
put "Whatever" into url ("file:"&appFolderPath&"HereIAm.txt")
get url ("file:"&appFolderPath&"HereIAm.txt")
When I open the text file later with a text editor, I see what I
expect to see.
However, when I make a standalone app of the stack, I no longer see
the text files in the folder. Are these text files being set as
"invisible" in the finder?
I'm running Enterprise 2.8.1 in OSX 10.5.6.
