The Cancel button throws a :cancel tag, which isn't caught by anything
in your code, so it throws all the way to the top level listener.
The second setf never gets a chance to execute, since the "setf" itself
is not in the cleanup clause of your unwind-protect.

How about something like this instead?

(let ((name (catch :cancel 
                (choose-file-dialog :mac-file-type :|TEXT|))))
    (setf aFileName (if (eq name :cancel)
