Try to call flatten on the resulting image before saving
($image->flatten). If that doesn't help, then add a sleep 3 or so after
the call to script-fu and keep your fingers crossed.
If that doesn't help either you might look at scm2perl and convert
the scheme plug-in to perl (followed by a lot of small adjustments,
as script-fu scripts are often rather unclean, due to the lakc of
type-safeness of the language).

With a lot of hacks, it's usually possible. But it often depends on the
particular script. It also sometimes helps to open a new image+drawable
before calling script-fu, as some scripts seem to have problems with image
or drawable ids of zero. Equally often it helps to not have any windows
open, as some scripts only work _if_ they open the very first image and/or
Most of these _should_ problems be fixed in 1.2.3, but some probably were
overlooked, and debugging these scripts is no fun.

Maybe ask whoever does cooltext.com, they certainly had either similar
problems or do it difefrently (e.g. with the script-fu server, however,
don'T use it unless you have properly firewalled it).

That's, indeed, what most people find out quickly when they get in contact

I am sorry, you must be fairly confused by now ;) Actually, it's because
script-fu doesn't really behave like any other gimp plug-in. The fact that
nobody regularly calls script-fu in normal work (there are few, if any,
generic script-fu scripts, so there is rarely need to call them from other
plug-ins) obviously made script-fu very low priority over the years.
The only people who do call script-fu from a plug-in are mostly people who
write logo-generators (like you do), and they often use perl.
