When you 'modal' a stack, the modal command will block the current 
script until the dialog closes. (e.g. You have an OK / Cancel button 
which do 'close this stack').

Note that messages *are* dispatched whilst this blocking occurs - 
otherwise events wouldn't get processed so you wouldn't have any user
