Some additional information on this bug.  This is what I have found  
on my machines.  If I have just booted my computer and I build a  
standalone called "My Standalone" do directory "~/My Directory" then  
all files are successfully copied to the standalone.  This operation  
would create a folder named "~/My Directory/My Standalone".  Now, if  
I delete the folder "My Standalone" and build another standalone than  
the bug rears its ugly head.  If I build another standalone without  
deleting the folder "~/My Directory/My Standalone" then all files are  
happily copied over because a brand new directory is created that  
didn't exist before.

And so it goes for any number of folders it seems.  If Rev is  
creating a folder that existed but was deleted then the file copy bug  
appears.  If it is creating a new folder than everything works.

If you reboot your computer than the whole process everything starts  
over it seems.  I *think* there is a bug in revCopyFile though it may  
just be an AppleScript bug and revCopyFile exposes it.  I'm not  
sure.  I say that because I have an app where we constantly delete a  
folder created during an export and then export the data again after  
creating the folder anew.  On occasion, revCopyFile would return some  
random execution error for no reason and refuse to copy files.

Using the ditto from shell seems to fix the problem.
