This seems to be caused by entering a bad measurement when setting up the avatar. If you choose Avatar->Reset Avatar and then reset Armorsmith Designer the problem will be gone.

Is this a standalone program or will I also need Pepakura Designer?

Armorsmith is a completely stand alone piece of software. You wont need any other programs for pattern generation.
