This is just expected behaviour. If you want to do this things hidden, you
need to change two things:

1. the tool should be 'browse' at the end of your script:
  choose browse tool

2. some flickering of the tools palette can be avoided too (only necessary
in IDE)
  lock screen
  -- do things
  unlock screen
  -- although the screen is automatically unlocked when finishing all
running scripts

So your new 'undercover' script is:

  on mouseUp
    lock screen
    create field "test"
    choose browse tool
  end mouseUp

Hope this helps.
