Typing "edit script of this stack" into the message box works fine here.
I do this routinely many times a day. No problems so far.

I put the above handler into the script of a new stack. I typed "s" in
the message box. The script opened and was as you say, uneditable. So
yes, a bug.
But if I change the script (which is still in the stack) to this:
edit script of cd 1
Then it works as expected. So apparently the lockup only happens if the
script that is running tries to edit itself. That makes some kind of
obscure sense to me, but probably should still be called a bug.
