Ok, this was interesting, the UI was not updating while working and 
testing the stack in the IDE... then I made and uploaded the revlet, 
clicked the button, the busy cursor did not appear,  (expected) but now 
the calcTime function was updating the UI on each loop and the statement 
"put the uIntro of fld "status" into fld "Status"   was being "honored." 
i.e. the field updated in the revlet as expected.
