How ironic. The stack contains the LC dictionary. I should have asked it.

Riddle solved.

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...)

Here's why. From the dictionary:

*Note:* The errorDialog message is only sent while Script Debug mode
is turned off.
