Could be where it is being referenced.  From the message box:
put the long id of background id 1020 of stack "AutoScriptSaver"
Returns:
bkgnd id 1020 of stack "/Users/milby/Desktop/AutoScriptSaver.livecode"
Until after I visit the card, when it changes to:
group id 1020 of card id 1025 of stack
"/Users/milby/Desktop/AutoScriptSaver.livecode"
This was in LC 8.1.9
The stack uses files(folder, type) so it doesn't work in 8.
