AppleEvents Bug FFFF

Aha! This explains why some of my AppleScripts have said they have "timed out." Specifically, I have an AppleScript that scrapes a few forums and opens every thread to the first unread post. It's a simple script but it still sends 10 to 20 "open URL" AppleEvents every time I run it (along with AEs to get the source of the page, etc.).

It made no sense to me that the event would "time out," but now it's clear… in what sense it's timing out. It's never coming back. It's a "lost packet" in a way.

Hopefully this can be fixed soon.
