Hi rob,

I encounter yet this kind of problem... but don't remember exactly :-)
The problem is with a hide or show command that falsifies the right  
pair between lock and unlock screen.
Then an image can't be hidden or a visual effect not shown.
A simple clue (hide hide image "runtime.gif" with visual effect dissolve
Or, as for last time, I did not understand ;-)
Another clue: your syntax: unlock screen with dissolve is not  
correct. Should be unlock screen with visual effect "dissolve"
May be Macs are less fussy about that...
