This sounds like it might be due to the breaking change in standalone building described in the release notes for 9.0:
The standalone builder has always needed to close the stacks it builds for reasons pretty deeply ingrained in the code. However this causes a few problems, for example:
values in script locals become empty
behaviors are broken when the parent script is on / in a stack which closes
As an attempt to improve this situation, the code that locks messages when closing and opening stacks for standalone builds has been removed. This means that where previously mainstacks would not receive openStack and closeStack messages during standalone build, they now do. If this causes problems for your stack, you can exit from the handler if standalone building is in progress:
if the mode of stack "revStandaloneProgress" > 0
then exit closeStack
I hope this helps,

It must have gone somewhere because Giovanni Cannizzaro [johnthejocker at yahoo.it] responded but I certainly can see how *he* saw it but no one else apparently did.

I am using Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 and have tried building the identical script (with the same result) on two different installations of said OS on two different machines.

An appropriate "destination" directory for the standalone is created as per the settings but it is completely empty.

I have NOT checked the LC QC bugs since I really don't know what I'm looking for other than potential issues with the standalone builder.
