savingStandalone message

Okay my standalone building bug is probably related to this one. I can provide any testing and feedback you need on this. For instance, I just quit all versions of Livecode, opened LC 8.1.2 rc1, ONLY opened the splash stack and NOTHING ELSE, tried to compile, and I get this dialog:

A stack with the same name as the one you
are trying to load is a lready open.
Before loading
/Users/bobsneidar/Documents/livecode
Projects/Forms Generator
8/Libraries/sql_yoga.livecode, what do you
want to do with stack:
/Users/bobsneidar/Documents/livecode
Projects/Forms Generator 8/Forms
Generator/Windows/sql_yoga.livecode,
libSQLYoga?

Note the WINDOWS in the second file path. It looks like after it's done compiling for Windows, it is leaving the copied library in memory (why it would have that copy open I do not know), so that when it goes to comile for Mac a second library is open in memory and it wants to save/purge it. As I mentioned this started happening with 8.1.1.
