Is it possible that the modal stack that you can "get around" is set to 
some other type besides Modal or TopLevel?  IIRC, if you set the type of 
the stack to say, palette, you cannot use  "go stack xxx modal" to 
change it.  I think the only stacks you can "change" in this way are 
TopLevel stacks.
