Have you tried resetting the Standalone Settings and then setting the  
password from another stack instead of the standalone settings.

Also do you have a complex preOpenStack or preOpenCard handlers?  
Specially ones that send messages to other objects? If so I have  
known this to cause problems that are very difficult to track down.  
If this is the case in your application, you could try moving the  
code to the openStack/openCard handler.

Cheers
