Well, I thought of that as well, and it still wouldn't work.  When in 
the development environment I am able to get the url, but in the 
standalone, nothing.

What I am wondering is if I can initialize the "libURL" hidden group on 
my own, to help ensure that the command is completed.  Would the 
following work:

   send "openBackground" to group "libURL"

Or is it called something else?  I'll try it and see what happens.
