jquery hide() not working

I have a window which pops up using tb_show("New Window", url, null);

When a button is clicked, I call a function defined in parent window and then get rid of the pop-up.
The parent window function in turn pops up same dialog.  The problem is for the user, it looks like the dialog stays in place, perhaps with a wired blink.  I want the dialog to actually reappear.

Here is the code currently in place:

In parent window:

openPopup();

Also tried:

setTimeout(openPrevAddrPopup(), 5000); - no effect

In Pop-up window:

function openPrevAddrPopup() {
        var url = "#TB_inline?height=300&width=600&inlineId=MyDivID";  
        tb_show("Previous Address", url, null);      
    }  

Function for button click:

function rerunRequest() {
    //debugger
        $(this).hide();
        parent.focus();
        ShowBlockUI('Searching Database');
        SearchInsuredCreditScore(prevAddress);
        HideBlockUI();
        //window.tb_remove(); -- using tb_remove() does not allow re-open same dialog
        parent.$(this).remove();
    }

ShowBlockUI and HideBlockUI are just customizations for jquery BlockUI plugin used throughout the application.

Thank you.

Also tried:
Get rid of the parentheses after openPrevAddrPopup. You need to use a function reference, not a function call:
setTimeout(openPrevAddrPopup, 5000);
