Both. If any script in the stack uses the "answer" command and a 
password has been set in the standalone builder, on Camm's machines the 
standalone will fail. What I think may be happening is some sort of 
conflict that prevents the answer dialog from appearing, but since it is 
a standalone, the failure is silent.

The sample stack he sent to the support queue had some very convoluted 
script messaging. I wondered if that was the cause and suggested some 
simplification techniques, but I didn't hear back about that.

At any rate, even with the existing scripts, I was able to build and use 
his sample standalone normally, even after adding a password to the SB.
