AW: open stack finds stack in wrong path!?

Hi Devin,
thank you for your explanations.
Either if I am using *go stack “mainStack.rev”*, or using the explicite path
*go stack item 1 to -2 of the effective filename of this stack & slash &
Whatever I do, my standalone always prefers the mainStack.rev from the
bundle directory and ignores the given path inside the bundle. Only if there
is no file "mainStack.rev" at the bundle level, the standalone takes the
"mainStack.rev" from inside the bundle.
Though there must be some more straight forward approach, the only solution
I now see is using two different names of the "mainStack.rev", one
"mainStackOSX.rev" for OS X inside the bundle and one "mainStackWin.rev" at
bundle level for the windows version, so that my OS X standalone can't catch
the wrong stack at bundle level anymore.

This should have said “On OS X looking for a stackfile relative to the
location of the splash stack/app, will look inside the .app bundle
