Unfortunately, the focus is not always on the window that has the files you
are converting; e.g., the files are on the desktop while the directory with
the Dropscript has the focus.

So far the osascript solution sounds the best bet. It appears that the
Dropscript gets the full path (not relative path) to the file(s) so the
script can set up the osacript refresh easily.

Good Luck,
