Icon in Standalone

Hello Randy,

I'm in the habit of Option + dragging  the recalcitrant application in  
order to "duplicate" it.  For me, this always seems to jar the Finder  
in the needed way.  If this doesn't do it for me it has always meant a  
problem elsewhere.  In my case it usually means I've messed up the  
pList.  However, I haven't noticed the standard rev-generated pList  
messing this up.
