I can see how your modification might be along the right lines, but  
the script did absolutely nothing (and so my computer and my mother  
remain fine :). I also modified a previous line with 'do script'  
instead of 'write text', which would seem to be the one to use for  
terminal and not iterm, and again the script didn't work. At the risk  
of blowing up my computer, might I encourage you to look at it again?

I do find 'h' to be sometime useful: it will tell me, for example, if  
a command is not defined, whereas simply going to the offending line  
is not always useful, especially as 'lines' are sometimes very long if  
the text is soft-wrapped. So sometimes I am reduced to going to a  
terminal and typing 'pdflatex file' by hand, so much displeasing the  
TextMate gods...
