I think I've figured it out; the files won't be any different. Test builds always include the 
remote debugger, standalones do not unless you specifically select it in Inclusions. I didn't 
do that, and I have an errorDialog handler in the stack, so I think that's causing the 
appearance of the error dialog in the standalone. In the test app the error seems to be ignored 
(but don't ask me why...)

I've submitted a bug report:

The stack is for my own use, a very (not so attractive) minimal LC dictionary lookup so I can 
check syntax when I'm not at my computer. You can download it from the report. Maybe someone 
else will find it useful. It uses James Hale's docset for reference. I couldn't get his Docset 
Reader to work reliably on Android, and I didn't need all the extra LC Builder and Guides 
documentation, so this is just a stripped-down list of dictionary terms.

The fix is mentioned in the report. Just comment out line 71 and uncomment the line with the 
fix. Checking the current card before initiating a search is the workaround.
