To clarify, what I mean by "pause" is that lua_pcall() must return so that control is back on the UI thread. Later, once I have received the event that the message box has been closed, I want to "resume" the previous call to lua_pcall().

AFAIU this is not possible because Android doesn't support modal loops at all.
