Problem with RegisterStartupScript and showModalDialog

I have an apsx page, Overview.aspx, that uses a call to RegisterStartupScript to register a script that opens a ModalDialog window, memRepHelp.aspx, using window.showModalDialog.  It works fine the first time it is called.

Problem:  The second time Overview.aspx opens the ModalDialog memRepHelp.aspx the code-behind for memRepHelp.aspx is not executed.  memRepHelp.aspx displays showing the old data from the first time it was displayed.

Here's the code from Overview.aspx:
If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            'popup Rep Help window
            Dim sCommand As String = "<script language=javascript>window.showModalDialog             ('/member/memRepHelp.aspx', '','dialogHeight:500px;dialogWidth:385px;scrollbars:no;help:no');</script>"
            Page.RegisterStartupScript("memRepHelp", sCommand)
        End If

Here's the Page Load for memRepHelp.aspx:
Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        'Put user code to initialize the page here
        Dim si As WebUserSession
        si = WebUserSession.SessionInfoGet()
        If Not Page.IsPostBack Then
            Dim ds As DataSet = MemberSystem.GetInstance().GetRepHelpSummary(si.MemberNumber)
            CreateHeader(ds)
            CreatePopUpMessages(ds)
        End If
    End Sub

Here's the HTML from memRepHelp.aspx:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
      <HEAD>
            <title>memRepHelp</title>

                  <div class="PopDivTagPos" id="PopdivBody" style="Z-INDEX: 100; WIDTH: 350px; HEIGHT: 8.7%">
                        <div align="left"><asp:panel id="pnlRepHelp" runat="server" Width="350px"></asp:panel></div>
                        <DIV align="right">
                        <INPUT onclick="window.close();" type="button" value="Close">
                        </DIV>
                  </div>
            </form>
      </body>
</HTML>

Instead of Modal have you tried window.open ?

In the past I had difficulty submitting from modal window

See my question here http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Web_Languages/ASP/Q_20272287.html

The purpose of this code is to open the popup window, memRepHelp.aspx (using window.showModalDialog) everytime the page Overview.aspx is loaded.  It works fine the first time.  The screen popsup, gets the current member number, calls the database and displays the member's information. When the user is done looking at the info they close the popup window (<INPUT onclick="window.close();" type="button" value="Close">
)  
When Overview.aspx is loaded with a new member number the popup, memRepHelp.aspx, is displayed but the code behind never executes and the info for the last member number is still displayed.  So I am trying to figure out why the code behind doesn't execute on subsequent executions of
"<script language=javascript>window.showModalDialog             ('/member/memRepHelp.aspx', '','dialogHeight:500px;dialogWidth:385px;scrollbars:no;help:no');</script>"
