I am (almost) positive that I am using the latest FBII update. I just updated
before the programming session when the problem happened. I am at work now,
but I will check my FB version tonight.

The problem description in TN38 is backwards from what I experience.
It is the first attempt to bring up an alert that fails.

However, I will try:
% _ACount,0
and let you know if it solves the first call failure.
