Modal dialog not modal... any hints?

I have this handler in a script:
function YesOrNo pQuestion, pDefaultAnswer
set the Question of stack "AskYesOrNo" to pQuestion
set the DefaultAnswer of stack "AskYesOrNo" to pDefaultAnswer
return the dialogData
The stack "AskYesOrNo" is intended to do what you'd expect: it displays the question with "yes" or "no" and returns "yes" or "no" in the dialog data. However, when I call this handler, it returns empty before it even displays the dialog. If I insert a "put" statement AFTER the "modal" statement, the putted text is visible in the message box while the dialog is on the screen, and statements in the caller of the YesOrNo function are executed before I exit the dialog.
In other words, "modal" seems broken. Before I start making test stacks, has anyone encountered this before? Could there be a bug in the dialog scripts that causes the dialog to fail silently?
