I think your script is running normally, unless you have symptoms you 
haven't mentioned. Debugging a modal window doesn't always work. You'll 
get varying results. Instead of setting a breakpoint, put some info into 
the message box temporarily so you can see which lines of script are 
running. Since the window does close as directed, I'm betting the rest 
of the lines of script are also running.
