Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): .2] hangs infinite

Product and version:  FM16, FM15

OS and version: Mac & PC

Hardware: irrelevant

Description: 'Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): .2]' doesn't continue after Pause.

How to replicate: a Script is running

     Allow User Abort [Off]

     Show/Hide Toolbars [Lock ; Hide]

     Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): .2]

Sometimes, the script won't continue.

Not clear, if any kind of Interaction (Keystroke, Mouse click, Script Trigger) interrupts the running script.

Workaround:  none found yet

Notes: 'Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): .2]' is a common work around (thanks Fred(CH)) also known as the FM "Voodoo Toolbox" (commit, Refresh, Pause) mostly used to prompt some under-the-hood FM rendering processes.

In my solution, Toolbars are always hidden. That's why you would not see when a running script is in Pause-State.
