Screen Personas flavor freezes in SAPGUI for Windows, works in Webgui

For a POC I created a simple Screen Personas 3 flavor for VA01. Basically we added a popup using a user exit. On the popup we display a list of materials. The flavor adds a button that calls a simple script that 1) puts the material number in a variable, 2) closes the popup and 3) adds a new item to the sales order for the material selected. This works fine in the Webgui.(but performance is a bit sluggish). In SAPGUI for Windows (or Business Client 6) the flavor renders fine and when I click the button created in the flavor in the popup the three steps are executed and I get a new item in the sales order. After that the screen stops refreshing though. I can navigate the menu and select an option (e.g. Save) but the resulting popup is not displayed. When I examine the session in SM04 I can see that the session is stuck at the ABAP code for the popup that is triggered at save but the session never displays the popup. When I resize the SAPGUI window I see a black area which indicates that the screen does not refresh at all.

Our system is running ERP 6.07 with the latest SPS (just ugraded) and kernel 7.42 patch 401. Screen personas SP3 is running and fully patched. Frontend is SAPGUI 7.40 PL 8 and Business Client 6 PL5.

Any suggestions?

    Personas flavor support in the SAPGUI is still in beta, so this seems to be a SAPGUI problem if it works in the webgui.

    Try to patch your SAPGUI to PL9. If it still doesn't work, then create an incident for component BC-FES-GUI.
