I have some old notes that tell me that FINDERINFO will only work if the
"High-level event aware" flag (in SIZE resource #-1) is turned _off_.  Have you
checked this?  (You can check it with ResEdit.)

I think FB creates this resource for you, _unless_ you include it in the
resource file specified in your program's RESOURCES statement.  To make sure
that FB doesn't "reset" that flag each time you compile, it's probably a good
idea to create your own copy of the resource (with the flags set the way you
want) and store it in your resource file.
