can't select text of field with traversalOn and lockText set to true

According to the dictionary,

If a field's traversalOn and lockText properties are both set to true, the
user can select text, but not change it, and can scroll within the field
using the keyboard.

However, I have a pair of fields with these set to true where I can't
select the text .  Could this be related to opening the stack as modal?
(it's an error dialog, and I want to be a able to cut & paste!)
