I tried John's sandwich example with a write-caption-pane in it.
Write-caption-pane in an accepting-values works in MCL and Allegro, but
causes a sheet lock on Symbolics:
Forget my earlier explanation.
I was confused about what you were trying to do. Basically, you are
asking Genera's crufty old window system to do something that it isn't
up to. Namely: write out on a partially obscured window. When you
pop-up the a-v window, it pops up on top of your application frame. You
can't do output to the application frame's panes until you've finished
with the a-v pane. Younger, more sprightly, window systems can do this.
Assuming this is an experiment and not a type of interaction you're
actually trying to achieve, I'll leave it at that. If you're using
pop-up a-v's to change application state, that's fine. Just don't try
to reflect the new state in your application panes until the a-v dialog
is finished. Even in a modern window system, remember that code inside
the pop-up a-v runs again and again and again...
