Open application when file double clicked

Wierdness abounds:

I made a standalone with this card script:

on startup
    insert script of btn "fs" into front
end startup


This script in a button "fs":

on appleEvent
    put the params &cr & the executionContexts &cr&cr after fld 1
    pass appleEvent
end appleEvent

And that same script in the stack.

When I double-click the resulting app, I see:

appleEvent "aevt","oapp",""
button id 1007 of card id 1002 of stack "/Users/rg/Desktop/ae tester/ae 
tester/ae tester.app/Contents/MacOS/ae tester",appleEvent,2

appleEvent "aevt","oapp",""
stack "/Users/rg/Desktop/ae tester/ae tester/ae 
tester.app/Contents/MacOS/ae tester",appleEvent,2


When I launch the app by dropping a text file onto it (I'd set it up to 
use TEXT/txt files) I get:

appleEvent "aevt","odoc",""
button id 1007 of card id 1002 of stack "/Users/rg/Desktop/ae tester/ae 
tester/ae tester copy.app/Contents/MacOS/ae tester",appleEvent,2

appleEvent "aevt","odoc",""
stack "/Users/rg/Desktop/ae tester/ae tester/ae tester 
copy.app/Contents/MacOS/ae tester",appleEvent,2

But I get no oapp when I launch the app with a document, and I get no 
odoc when I launch the app without one.

I've searched the LC scripts and this issue is different from the older 
one I'd experienced, since the other one was consistent and caused by a 
rev script.

This one appears to be engine-level, in which only the first Apple event 
is processed, and subsequent ones ignored.

Can anyone confirm this before I update my bug report?
