    signature script stops until Acrobat is the frontmost application

      OS X 10.5.1, Acrobat 8.1.2

      I'm signing a document from another application by calling Acrobat with the shell scripting interface:

      osascript -e 'tell application "Adobe Acrobat Professional"' \
      -e 'do script file "path:to:file.js" as alias' \
      -e 'end tell'

      The Javascript code is straight from the SDK example. It hits the signature function, Acrobat beeps, and then bounces in the dock for attention. If you switch to Acrobat the script continues and finishes correctly. There is no dialog, alert, or anything in the console as to why it stops. The same script worked fine with Acrobat 7.
