Paul, I've seen this too.  Launch a standalone and it doesn't show.  I've
only seen this when using the browser widget as part of the build. (haven't
really used other widgets, so I can't speak for those)  If I then go into
task manager and tell it to create a dump file for my application, poof..
it moves from background processes to apps and works fine, including the
browser widget.  (I can also make it appear by choosing to debug)
Removing the widget, or not putting the check in the box for it in
standalone settings makes the app show up just fine. But of course without
a functional widget.
