Problem with copy groups in standalones

Is this the famed "can't modify a compiled app" problem? Is your stack that contains the groups the main stack? If so, then you cannot modify the main stack after it is compiled. 

To repeat an old, old solution, have your main stack be a dumb splash screen that calls your real stack as a substack of your application. Then you can modify the stack all you want.
