It's almost certainly your menubar. On Mac, the stack shrinks to hide 
the menu group, and puts the menus in the system menu bar instead. 
That's just how it works.

During development, turn off Preview in Menubar in the menu builder. 
That should stop it. After that the menu group will be at the top of the 
card as before. Also, uncheck the destroystack property in the stack 
inspector, there was a bug in the engine that caused stacks with 
menubars to shrink when building standalones if that was turned on in 
some cases.

Before building a standalone, turn Preview back on.
