I haven't tested it, but I think what you would want is to find the  

           write text "cd #{e_as(e_sh(dir))}; clear; pwd"

and change it to something along the lines of

           write text "cd #{e_as(e_sh(dir))}; clear; pwd; pdflatex \"# 

(Untested, might blow your computer up and insult your mother etc)

This would still only work at best if you don't use a master document/ 
included files setup. That would require a bit more work.

But does it happen often that you find the typing of "h" to be  
helpful at all? I've never found TeX's helpful suggestions all that  
helpful personally. Either the error is obvious enough from the  
message, or it is too complex for the message to be helpful. But I  
guess your mileage may vary.
