If you are using your own dialog stacks, dialogData is perfectly safe 
(though it's a good idea to retrieve the value as soon as possible since 
other IDE stacks can alter it.) However, if you are using any of the RR 
stacks, there are scripts in those that get and set the dialogData for 
use in the IDE. Those scripts will run after yours and alter the value 
of the dialogData, which may be what you are seeing.
