Select "Move substacks into individual stackfiles" from the Standalone
Application Settings. Then you shouldn't need the clone command. I
usually use a splashscreen stack that does no more than launch a
substack, which is the main application. The substack is in a separate
file, which makes it safe to edit as far as the OS is concerned.
