Weirdness Passing Messages

function ListenForMessages theMessageID,theHanlderLocation

Adds to an Array (stored in a GlobalProperty of StackUtil) as so:

MessageArray[theMessageID] =  theHanlderLocation

If theMessageID is already in the Array and the Location is not  
already in the data part of the array, then it is appended, so the  
array looks like this:

    Key                      Data
"MessageX"          ObjectX of Card 2 of Stack "StackMain",ObjectY of  
Card 2 of Stack ""StackMain"

and is called like so:

ListenForMessages("MessageX",the long name of me)

function PutMessage theMessageID

Looks up theMessageID in the Array built in ListenForMessages and  
calls (via a "send" statement) the handler with the name theMessageID  
at the location(s) specified in the data part of the array.

As I said the Message handling functions seem to work fine in  
general, but not when PutMessage() is called from within a message  
handler OR when called from a different card that the one that called  
the initial message. Not sure which!

Thanks a lot
All the Best
