What is going on is way more complex than you think. You have to find the part of Matt Neubergs book "AppleScript the Definitive Guide" where Berkowitz is referenced, it is around a discussion of the open and run handler. Berkowitz nailed it.
You see, the error statement triggers the run handler ... So you are really jumping into the run handler in the middle of your open handler.
I guess something similiar will happne if you can't open a webloc file with the open handler.
Control is passed over to the run handler/implicit runhandler, and nothing more happens if you havent taken the measures described in Matt Neuburgs book.

(And, coincidentally, the webloc file was NOT opened in Safari!) So even though this kept the webloc from opening, there's still no access to the file itself. Clearly, the 'on open' handler does not treat webloc files as regular files.
> When I dragged three webloc files on the same script, one of them (but not all) opened in Safari. And, as you pointed out, the script essentially dies at that point. I can't figure out what dictates which webloc opens, but it's not the alphabetical order of either their filenames or URLs nor the chronological order of either their creation or modification dates.

Mollison's Bureaucracy Hypothesis:
If an idea can survive a bureaucratic review
and be implemented it wasn't worth doing.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
