iOS pickWheel woes....

First: I love 4.5.2 and the iOS integration.
Second: I'm afraid I'm collecting evidence that I am stupid.
I can't get a result from iphonePick or menuPick in the simulator much less on my iTouch. What am I doing wrong?

I'm following the example in revLessons "How do I use the Picker View on an iPhone?"
except I have locked field "AnswerField" with a single name in it and the following script.
- - - -
put field "List Of Data" into listOfData -- Load the entire list of names
put lineOffset (the text of me, listOfData) into curIndex -- Find the line of the current name
iphonePick listOfData, curIndex -- Load picker & highlight current name
if the result is empty then -- Double check something happened
put "NOPE" into field "AnswerField"
put the result into field "AnswerField" -- Put the selection into the field

I click on the field to bring up pick wheel and preselect the name currently shown in the field. I "spin" the wheel to select a different name and click "Done". That should return new name or index or something. All I get is a number that happens to be the index of the initial selection (e.g. 4 if the fourth name was selected initially).
When I use an option button to try to do the same thing using menuPick, I get a different useless result.. a change in the name of the button but no other actions. It's as though the "Done" part of the iphonePick stopping everything..
Am I missing something? Is this not actually operational yet.. and if not, why oh why did you show it to me.... This is so basic to so much I need to do that I hate having it so close and yet so far. I can add a mouseWithin/mouseWithout type of handler to poll the name of the button but that seems like overkill and probably a bad idea for more reasons than I can imagine......
