The script should be available as soon as you click Apply.

Can you experiment a little with this and try to track down a test case?
One possible reason for scripts not working is errors that cause a compile
error - occasionally the error message doesn't appear, so the script can't
be compiled and none of its handlers work until the error is corrected. Is
it possible that this is what you saw?
