I do not know if it is the same bug or not, but I re-encountered the bug
that made me temporarily change fireEvents to be public so it could be
called from flowscript (iirc it was reverted when I forgot how to trigger
the bug.)  The bug is that the firing of events sometimes get delayed
until after showForm returns, causing very strange behavior.  Sorry I
have not had time yet to track down the source of the problem.  Sounds
like there is at least a chance this is related to your problem.
