Why does this line work in IDE, fail in standalone?

Hi gurus.

This line of code copies a button to a new stack. Works great in the IDE.
Fails in my standalone (v6.1.1, Windows XP).

copy button "Master Round" of card "Home" to card "index" of stack

I also tried:

clone button "Master Round" of card "Home" to card "index" of stack

They fail in slightly different ways: I used newButton message to detect any
action, and copy does not fire the newButton handler, but clone does.
However, neither copy or clone creates the button in the target stack in the

The target stack (gActiveFile) is a new, empty stack created as a user data

Thanks for any help! Been hammering on this for hours and hours.
