I have it tracked down.  It seems to occur between my code calling for a
stack to open and the preOpenStack handler for that stack:

I can't do any logging *within* livecode, but I've added some puts to the
file system itself.

For the code:

   put "opening dialgosM as modal" & cr & the seconds  into url
   open cd "otLnch" of stack "dialogsM" as modal
   put "back from dialgosM"  & cr & the seconds  into url

I end up with the file:
   opening dialgosM as modal

Feeling clever, I put traps in the first lines of preOpenStack & openStack
of stack dialogsM

  on preOpenStack
     --   lock screen
      put "in dialgosM preOpenStack" & cr & the seconds  into url

This code is never reached.

The only thing in cd otLnch's handler is a mouseUp routine
