This doesn't exactly address the problem, but I think you said you were 
only doing some global replacements in the script. You can do that 
directly in the script editor and avoid the external editor issue. Cmd-F 
will bring up the Find pane in the editor, and clicking the "More" 
button will allow lots of ways to replace text, including a regex option 
(expand the little toggle arrow to see them.) Cmd-Shift-F will bring up 
the replace dialog directly.
