Can't read text from file on OS 9

I have a weird problem here.  I built a standalone for OS 9 using 2.5.  
I'm testing under Classic but a client is testing on a machine running 
OS 9.

In the code I use put URL ("file:"&pPath) into tMyVar to get text from 
a file.  The path is one retrieved from the answer file command.  On OS 
X and Windows the text is retrieved without a problem.  Not so on OS 9. 
  I just get empty.  I also tried open file, read from file and close 
file but that doesn't work either.  No errors are reported, just not 
data from the file.

Can anyone else confirm whether this is happening on their end?
