Okay, more on this. I can reproduce the problem, but it is temporary. I 
was wrong when I said the script was uneditable and locked. What I have 
just noticed is that the script is not locked, but rather unfocused.

When you get the uneditable script editor, simply click over to the 
message box (or anywhere else) and then back into the editor and it will 
become editable again. So the problem isn't as bad as it seems; it looks 
like more of a cosmetic thing.
