You might be right it’s always sucked this bad :)

That script has always been pretty bad — since at least 10.5 it always fails if the user has no signatures (5633026). Running it in the Script Editor in Lion at least gets to that point for me before failing. Using osascript on it in the Terminal fails because “No user interaction allowed” — not sure if that’s a bug or not given security changes.

Regarding Clark’s comment, there is currently a bug in Lion where you can’t ask an app to write outside of its sandbox:

set user_documents to path to documents folder
tell application “TextEdit”
make new document
save document 1 in file (user_documents & “test doc” as text)
end tell

Here’s an early beta release if you want to try it out now:

It will be easier to track down what happened over email.

Previously, I could hit a key and the associated app would come to the front. That doesn’t work now and renders the application useless for me.

It seems like such a waste to have two script menus up there, one good and one not so good.

I hope that Apple will not decide that whole classes of applications are now verboten just because they use techniques such as scripting or AppleEvents.

I know Apple has temporary exceptions but it does seem that Apple’s views on security are conflicting with their past support (and encouragement) of Apple Events. Have you heard anything in this regards to give one confidence Apple still has Apple Events in mind as a real strategy?
