Popup won't open via UIManager:QueuePopup

    I am trying to open UnitPromotionPopup using LuaEvents.UnitPanel_PromoteUnit(). Very simple event that ends up calling OnPromoteUnitPopup() in UPP.lua that prepares data and eventually calls UIManager:QueuePopup(ContextPtr, PopupPriority.Current) to open a window.

    You can fire the event in FireTuner and it always goes into OnPromoteUnitPopup(). If the unit has an available promotion, it properly queues the popup. I've checked that using UIManager:IsInPopupQueue(ContextPtr).

    Now the problem. The window only opens if the unit is already selected on the map. And I want to do the following:
    xxx is ofc a unit id, but a different one. The selection works - another unit is selected (checked with UI.GetHeadSelectedUnit()), event is called, OnPromoteUnitPopup() properly detects selcted unitt (yes! it knows that a new unit is selcted), popup is queued (again, checked that) but the window doesn't open. What gives? What am I missing in this sequence?
