Model stack that doesn't Stop Messages

I've got a mainstack that when it loads the "openStack" handler, it modals a substack that downloads a few files from a web server. When it's done downloading it is to close and the main stack then continues with it's operations.
I'm experiencing a wonderful little issue now where the stack models, but the mainstack continues it's handlers and does not wait for the model'd stack to finish it's own operations. So then I just get nothing but errors. On top of that, the model'd stack is executing the "preOpenStack" and "openStack" handlers from the mainstack instead of it's own.
Any ideas on what's going on? Here's the mainstack's script...
put "ftp://****:****@ftp.valuworld.com/www/htdocs/supermallsystem/" into ftpAddress
put queryRegistry("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ValuLine Online\Customer Manager\ScreenRect") into newRect
if newRect is not empty then set the rect of this stack to newRect
set cursor to watch
-- Perform Downloading Operations
set the dialogData to "downloadAccountAgent"
modal stack "wsmTransferAgent"
put the dialogData into theResult
if theResult is not empty then
put warnAsk("Error","An error occured while attempting to download the Accounts and Agents data.") into errorResult
-- Perform Screen Update Operations
And here's the modeled sub-stack's script...
set the thumbPosition of scrollbar "progress1" to 0
set the thumbPosition of scrollbar "progress2" to 0
put empty into cd fld "status1"
put empty into cd fld "status2"
put the dialogData into theAction
if theAction is "downloadAccountAgent" then
else if theAction is "uploadAccountAgent" then
