I have a Python script with a composite locator that works when run from the Python window in ArcMap, but crashes when run standalone.  I am running ArcGIS 10.1 SP1 (Build 3143) Desktop Standard(ArcEditor) on a Windows 7 64 bit.  Also I can run the script in the Python window in ArcMap or standalone if I change the locator to a individual locator.  The locators are from StreetMap Premium 2012 R3  -  USA_2012R3_NT_AddressPoint' and 'USA_2012R3_NT_Composite' . 

The message Windows message from the crash is:

  Stopped working

Problem signature:

It appears that the problem is with running a composite locator as a standalone Python script.
