OmniFocus Quick Entry Applescript Crash
 
Greetings fellow scripters!

I recently authored an Apple Mail Applescript that adds the last sent email message as task to OmniFocus (OF) and sets the task's context to the recipient of the email.

Unfortunately, when using the Quick Entry window, the script crashes OF 1 out of 3 times. This seems to be due to setting the task's "context" property. Which is to say, when using the Quick Entry window, if I forego setting the "context" property, the script does _not_ crash OF. Note that the script runs without a hitch every time when adding a task directly to OF's Inbox.

Here's my script:
[CODE]
(* Adds last sent email to OF as a task *)
property _account : "Work"
property _useQuickEntry : false
property _prefix : "Follow-up w/"
property _prependSubject : "re:"
property _defaultContext : "Waiting on"

tell application "Mail"
set _sentMBox to mailbox "Sent" of account _account
set _msg to first message in _sentMBox
set _content to content of _msg
set _subject to subject of _msg
set _recipients to name of to recipient of _msg
set _msgID to do shell script "/usr/bin/python -c 'import sys, urllib; print urllib.quote(sys.argv[1])' " & (message id of _msg)

-- See if there is more than one recipient in the 'To' field
if (count of _recipients) > 1 then
set _recipientName to (item 1 of _recipients & " " & "and" & " " & ((count of _recipients) - 1) as string) & " " & "more"
else
set _recipientName to item 1 of _recipients
end if
end tell

-- Sanitize the subject line
set _subject to replace_chars(_subject, "Re: ", "")
set _subject to replace_chars(_subject, "re: ", "")
set _subject to replace_chars(_subject, "Fwd: ", "")
set _subject to replace_chars(_subject, "fwd: ", "")

set _taskTitle to _prefix & " " & _recipientName & " " & _prependSubject & " " & _subject
set _taskNote to "Created from message://%3C" & (_msgID) & "%3E"

tell application "OmniFocus"
tell default document
-- Find the recipients context
try
set _agendaContext to the first flattened context where its name contains (item 1 of _recipients)
on error _error
set _agendaContext to the first flattened context where its name contains _defaultContext
end try

-- Set Properties
set _taskProps to {name:_taskTitle, note:_taskNote}

if _useQuickEntry then
tell quick entry
open

-- I would like to also set the context here, but 1 out of 3 times this call crashes OF
if _agendaContext is not missing value then set _taskProps to _taskProps & {context:_agendaContext}
set _task to make new inbox task with properties _taskProps

select {_task}
activate
tell application "System Events" to keystroke tab
end tell
else
if _agendaContext is not missing value then set _taskProps to _taskProps & {context:_agendaContext}
set _task to make new inbox task with properties _taskProps
end if
end tell
end tell

-- Text Replacement routing
on replace_chars(this_text, search_string, replacement_string)
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the search_string
set the item_list to every text item of this_text
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the replacement_string
set this_text to the item_list as string
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to ""
return this_text
end replace_chars
[/CODE]

Any help you could provide would be [B]greatly[/B] appreciated!
