I'm not sure, since I'm not exactly sure what is going wrong, but it sounds
like it could be a bug ... So I need to see the Transcript output for the
3(?) different scenarios:

   1.  load and update
   2. failed load of "change"
   3. workaround for failed load of "change"

it would also help if I saw the loadScript method...
