URL Parameters Sample (Polygons vs. Points)

We've been working with this sample http://help.arcgis.com/en/webapi/javascript/arcgis/help/jssamples_start.htm and are having some issues using it with Point data rather than the Polygon data that is leveraged in the sample. When we change the code to use a point based data source we are able to get it to place a PictureMarkerSymbol at the selected point's location, however the popup window does not appear and it does not re-center the map as it does with the Resource Center Sample.

Below are links to our two versions:

I suspect my issue is somewhere within this function but I may be totally off base:

//when users click on the map select the parcel using the map point and update the url parameter         dojo.connect(map, 'onClick', function (e) {           var query = new esri.tasks.Query();           query.geometry = e.mapPoint;           var deferred = sites.selectFeatures(query, esri.layers.FeatureLayer.SELECTION_NEW, function (selection) {             //update the url param if a parcel was located             if (selection.length > 0) {               var entityid = selection[0].attributes['OBJECTID'];               //Refresh the URL with the currently selected parcel               if (typeof history.pushState !== 'undefined') {                 window.history.pushState(null, null, "?entityid=" + selection[0].attributes.OBJECTID);               }             }           });           map.infoWindow.setFeatures([deferred]);           map.infoWindow.show(e.mapPoint);          });


Please let us know if you've run into this previously or have any ideas on how to resolve the issue.

Thanks so much!
