Hi.  I have a an ASP program that doesn't work, unless I have a javascript alert, embedded in the asp, in the middle of execution.  Here is my program flow:
Page 1 is my main page

During Page1 Load -> calls Page 2 to load into a page1 frame
Page1 OnLoad() -> calls Page 3 to load into a page1 frame
Page3 ->calls Page 4

This program executes correctly if I put an alert() in Page 2.  It also executes correctly if I have a 'dummy' modal window open with a button, and the button is clicked by me (the user), which closes the window.  It doesn't work if I modally open the window and programmatically click the button to close the window.  If I take out the alert or dummy page, I error out on page 2 (error:  object does not support this property or method (URL))  This error occurs on the line where I am setting the workspace for the frame.

I guess what I am trying to figure out is what is happening when I force user input in the middle of execution.  Are the order of events changing???  Any thoughts appreciated!
