LC 4.6.3 Gotcha?

My previous message with this subject line was too complicated and hard to understand, so I'm going to re-post it, simplified:

A script that has worked for years has stopped working. I'm not getting an error message. It just partly executes, then stops.

The only reason I can think of is that I recently upgraded from LC 4.5.x to LC 4.6.3 (for the Macintosh).

The essence of the old script:

go to stack "schedule"

the "billingnote2" message is supposed to find its handler in the script of a group on stack "schedule" I'm sure the necessary group is present on the card.

As a test, I put this handler in the group script of stack "schedule"

on billingNote2
	answer "this handler is working"
end billingNote2

I'm not getting an answer.

I changed the script:
go to stack "schedule"
send "billingnote2" to stack "schedule"

it started working.

Why did this script stop working? Does it have something to do with the upgrade to 4.6.3?
