Screen snapshot troubles

Hello all!

Developing a standalone with Mac OS 9.2.2 and Rev1.1.1

I'm having a small problem with taking a screenshot of the cards of my 
app.  What I'm trying to accomplish is this...

My app has MANY settings and options for the user to make.  If things 
don't work out correctly for him, I wanted an easy way for him to send 
me a screenshot, so that I could help him.  So, when I do this:

import snapshot from rectangle 85,80,695,565
export JPEG to URL "binfile:MainPageSnap.jpg"
delete last image

This works fine except you see a momentary "offsetting" of the image on 
the screen.  Being picky, I thought I would add a simple 
lockScreen...so...I end up with:

lock screen
import snapshot from rectangle 85,80,695,565
export JPEG to URL "binfile:MainPageSnap.jpg"
delete last image

This results in an image that is just a large, solid purple block the 
size of the screen...with all the details gone.  This happens from the 
IDE, I haven't tried it with a standalone yet...but I can't imagine it 
will improve.

What's up with this?  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance for your help!

Best Regards,

Tim Ponn
