Andre, I opened the stack with Media, but no luck. However, I created a new stack and it worked (the short one). It seems obvious that the problem is in the stack. However, I converted the same stack to Supercard and that same script (the long one) works in SC, as well as in Hypercard. I did a search for arrowKey in the search box and found it only once, in the stack script.
