BibDesk 1.5.4 (2141)
Mac OS 10.7.1 (11B26)
Opening a tex file in BibDesk using AppleScript results in a hang situation and an "AppleEvent timed out." number -1712" error after the timeout. BibDesk does launch (if not already running) and open the tex file, but control flow does seem to be returned to the AppleScript interpreter. While the script hangs, BibDesk can be sampled using the Activity Monitor application (see attached sample file).
Here's is a simple script that causes the hang situation:
set theFile to POSIX file "/private/tmp/test.bib"
tell application "BibDesk"
This started happening after upgrading to Mac OS Lion, so maybe it's a bug in Lion's AppleScript engine rather than in BibDesk.
