Updating Find Task Woes

In my quest to update one of my web apps to AMD style, I am running into a perplexing issue with my find task. The structure of this task is found in many places in the Samples. The following code is my version of it on my app:

Global variables, require and function calls
 var map, navToolbar, infoTemplate, identifyTask, identifyParams, findTask, findParams, graphicsLayer, searchText;         require(["dojo/parser", "dojo/_base/connect", "dojo/_base/array", "esri/map", "esri/layers/ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer", "esri/layers/GraphicsLayer", "esri/graphic", "esri/InfoTemplate", "esri/toolbars/navigation", "dojo/dom", "esri/tasks/FindTask",             "esri/tasks/FindParameters", "dijit/dijit", "dijit/layout/BorderContainer", "dijit/layout/ContentPane",             "dijit/layout/AccordionContainer", "dijit/form/TextBox", "dijit/form/Button", "dijit/Toolbar", "dijit/Tooltip", "dijit/registry",             "dojo/_base/Color", "esri/symbols/SimpleMarkerSymbol", "esri/symbols/SimpleLineSymbol", "esri/symbols/SimpleFillSymbol",             "esri/tasks/IdentifyTask", "esri/tasks/IdentifyParameters", "esri/tasks/IdentifyResult", "dojo/domReady!"         ], function (           parser, connect, array, Map, ArcGISDynamicMapServiceLayer, GraphicsLayer, Graphic, InfoTemplate, Navigation, dom, FindTask,           FindParameters, Color, SimpleMarkerSymbol, SimpleLineSymbol, SimpleFillSymbol, IdentifyTask, IdentifyParameters, IdentifyResult, registry         )

The find task:

function execute(searchText) {             //set the search text to find parameters             //create find tasks with url to map services             findTask = new esri.tasks.FindTask("");             //create find parameters and define known values             findParams = new esri.tasks.FindParameters();                          findParams.returnGeometry = true;             //findParams.outSpatialReference = map.spatialReference;             findParams.layerIds = [7];             findParams.searchFields = ["NAME", "NUMBER"];                          findParams.searchText = searchText;              findTask.execute(findParams, showResults, findErr);          }          function showResults(results) {              //display the results of the building text search             //symbology for graphics             markerSymbol = new esri.symbol.SimpleMarkerSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleMarkerSymbol.STYLE_SQUARE, 20, new esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol.STYLE_SOLID, new dojo.Color([0, 255, 255]), 1), new dojo.Color([0, 255, 255, 0.25]));             lineSymbol = new esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol.STYLE_DASH, new dojo.Color([0, 255, 255]), 1);             polygonSymbol = new esri.symbol.SimpleFillSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleFillSymbol.STYLE_NONE, new esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol(esri.symbol.SimpleLineSymbol.STYLE_DASHDOT, new dojo.Color([0, 255, 255]), 2), new dojo.Color([0, 255, 255, 0.25]));              //find results return an array of graphics in the graphicslayer.             graphicsLayer = new esri.layers.GraphicsLayer();             graphicsLayer.spatialReference = map.spatialReference;   ;              //Build an array of attribute information and add each found graphic to the map             dojo.forEach(results, function (result) {                 var graphic = new esri.Graphic(result.feature);                 graphic.spatialReference = map.spatialReference;                 graphic.setSymbol(polygonSymbol);       ;                 graphicsLayer.add(graphic);             });              //create an extent matching the graphics of the parcel(s)             var zoomExtent = esri.graphicsExtent(;             var zoomXmin = zoomExtent.xmin;             var zoomXmax = zoomExtent.xmax;             var zoomScale = zoomXmax - zoomXmin;             if (zoomExtent.xmin < 2460000 || zoomExtent.ymin < 1345000 || zoomExtent.xmax > 2630000 || zoomExtent.ymax > 1505000) {                 apprise("Your Find Building results include a building outside of ACC/Main UGA Campus. Please refine your search");             }             else if (zoomScale > 10000) {                 apprise("Your Find Building results require a coarse scale to display. Please refine your search");             }             else {                 map.setExtent(zoomExtent.expand(2));             }         }          function findErr(error) {             //Alerts the user to a return of no results in building search             apprise("Your search returned no results. Please refine your search.");         }

The find task function showResults is failing to findErr at the point when I attempt to add the graphic to the map and to the graphicsLayer:

      ;                 graphicsLayer.add(graphic);

If I comment out these add statements, I fail out at the extent creation, but one thing at a time, right? :-)

Anyone have any ideas on why I cannot add the graphics to the map or to the graphics layer? I tried to address any issue that spatial reference might cause with setting the graphics returned from the FindTask and the GraphicsLayer to the map Spatial Reference, but I am at a loss.
