openCard message not received

I'm running 2.2.1 on OS X.  I created a new stack, pasted your code 
into the card script, saved, then closed and reopened the stack; no 
other changes (not even the stack name).  The message box showed up as 
it should.

I then proceeded to open the stack in Dreamcard Player (2.5, OS X), 
which also worked fine.  What platform are you using, just in case it 
is platform-specific?  Have you tried building a standalone to see if 
that receives the message?

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten 
Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have 
everlasting life.
