I recommend you just call the mred-level dialogs, instead of the
framework ones. The framework ones are legacy code now -- most (all?)
of the functionality is now at the mred layer.

This could easily be a bug in the framework. Do you get a stack trace?
Or perhaps do you have a small program that reproduces the problem?

I think you want define-runtime-path.
