[Seaside] Some trouble with call & answer... I think the workflow should continue, but it doesn't

Hi Pat,

Use #call:, not #call:onAnswer:. #call: will return with the value
answered by the called component. #call:onAnswer: never returns (the
value answered by the component is passed into block given as the
second parameter).

(is my call/answer usage wrong? am I forgetting to return something via #states?).  Thanks for any help.
