ask dialog removes selectedChunk in field

Greetings,

When I use the ask dialog to get some user input on changing some  
hilighted text in a field, the ask dialog removes the focus from the  
field, thus losing the ability to use the selectedChunk after the  
dialog has been dismissed.

I did not know if there was any way within any of the properties to  
stop this, such as setting traversalOn, so I put the selectedChunk  
into a variable before the ask dialog.

Other than what I have done to resolve this, is there some property  
dealing with the ask dialog that might bypass the need to record the  
selectedChunk before the ask dialog?

Thanks,
-Garrett
