They're launching and compiling, but not talking.

I have a field in master with

 on closeField

   write the text of me to process slave
end closeField

and the main stack of slave has

on openStack
   send "checkIt" to me   in 1 sec
end openStack

on checkIt
   read from stdin   until end
   if it is not empty then
      answer "got: " & it
   end if
   put it into fld "sInput"
   send "checkIt" to me   in 1 sec
end checkIt

but nothing seems to get transferred when I type and leave the field.
