10.5: How to launch-and-hide via AppleScript in 10.5

Strange bugs you're seeing; I'm not seeing anything like that. A single activate works fine for launching, and hide works as expected. The following Works For Me:

tell application "Mail" to activate
tell application "Finder" to set visible of process "Mail" to false

10.5: How to launch-and-hide via AppleScript in 10.5
Authored by: francola on Jan 29, '09 08:34:55AM

I am honestly not sure why the normal situation is not working for me. What I posted does work for me though, and it also works with the known issue of Mail not hiding properly as I stated. Anyone's input as to why this might be needed for my machine and not someone else's would be appreciated. I tried disabling spaces to no avail.
