Desk scrap lost when using appleScript to switch&paste

Dear Folks:
I trying to use a word processor to log text and graphics generated by
an MCL program. I'm using Tom Bonura's applescript.lisp to tell the
application to activate and paste. Before running the script I
PUT-SCRAP the data (text for now) so that the right thing will be
pasted. However, what's actually pasted is old data, from when I last
manually switched between programs. What's the deal? I thought I might
need to call externalize-scrap, but that didn't work. Would someone
please tell em what I need to do to get MCL to "really" copy
something? Thanks in advance for any help!
