I really don't think that's true. After all, Stanley did threaten to disband her, and earlier, he said it was "impossible" for her to disobey his orders.
She wasn't affected by the fall of FAQ because she had already changed loyalty to a different side before it happened. We know that in certain situations a unit can betray their side and switch their loyalty to an enemy. However, before she switched, she was part of FAQ's side, and was bound by them; after, she is now part of Stanly's side, and is bound by him. She could betray him in the future, but so could anyone, unless they're bound with a loyalty spell (or, I guess, unless the "natural thinkamancy" is too strong for them?); until she does, though, she is clearly a part of his side.
