Scripter has some "issues"  with various screen and other updates that 
you simply have to cope with, since the current version of Scripter will 
not be fixed. For example, when I run the script that Henry has based 
this on, there is a mismatch between the screen page and the indicator 
of where you are in the file according to the bottom of the screen widget.

I've played with the Redraw toggle and haven't yet sorted out how to use it.
