Bash dialog show infobox script on RHEL 6.2

I'm using dialog to make it possible to manually backup a directory.

I need to run a few pre backup scripts and I want to show which script is running, however as soon as the script is called the screen turns blue instead of showing me the dialog infobox.

This is an example:

dialog --clear --title "Stop c-tree" --backtitle "company name" \
       --infobox "Stopping c-tree server" 20 5
/path/to/bin/ stop
So as soon as I run the the screen turns blue instead of showing me the infobox.

I Hope you can help me.

You are using --clear and --infobox together so only "clear" is executed.
dialog --clear
dialog --title "Stop c-tree" --backtitle "company name" --infobox "Stopping c-tree server" 5 20
/path/to/bin/ stop
