There are many things that will stop a script performing in 1.3 as in 1.2.2 
that may not yet have been fixed or are just different. One thing is the 
inserting of frames is not always right as you will note we have added 
variable sized scratch space/pasteboard around pages and better support for 
facing pages. Positioning might be completely off for these reasons.
