Are you sure that's what's going on? I've found that if the line
height isn't set properly in a text box I can paste stuff into it and
all I see is the trailing CR. But the text is actually there and if I
click in there and use the arrow keys to go up it appears. Are you
grabbing the text after the ask command and seeing what's in there?

ask "blah"
put it into someField
