I have a subscript that will not perform as expected without inserting "Pause" commands following 'go to record' commands.

I have a subscript that does not perform as expected. The section in question:

 

This Works as a standalone script but does not work as a sub script.

    Go to Record/Request/Page [No dialog; $UpperLimit]

    Go to Record/Request/Page [Mo dialog; $LowerLimit]

    Go to Record/Request/Page [Mo dialog; $CurrentRecord]

 

This works in both cases

    Go to Record/Request/Page [No dialog; $UpperLimit]

    Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): .5]

    Go to Record/Request/Page [Mo dialog; $LowerLimit]

    Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): .5]

    Go to Record/Request/Page [Mo dialog; $CurrentRecord]

 

$UpperLimit and $LowerLimit are fixed offsets from $CurrentRecord location on displayed records. Problem is to make the list always center on a given record, in this case $CurrentRecord. The workaround is effective but I would like to know why it is necessary.
