In Celestia v1.6, Mesh objects which are defined by an Addon in extras-standard are not found when they're referenced by Addons in extras. They should be.

For example, when the SSC file below is placed in extras, the ISS model is not drawn for the object "1998-067a"
(For this project, I am comparing several different orbit definitions for the ISS, so I can't simply use a Modify directive. User addons shouldn't be put in extras-standard, since it is intended for objects defined in the Celestia distribution kit.)
