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 interaction.
