I've seen this behavior if I have something like a "on mousemove" 
handler in my main stack. It brings the stack forward. The modal nature 
of your substack is probably what makes the main stack inaccessible. 
The solution, if this is the case, is to trap out the mousemove handler 
(or whatever it is) in the substack:

on mousemove

end mousemove
