I use Gimp under Ubuntu 10.04.  My question is fairly simple.  I have been
using Gimp since 2.0, and have copied scripts over from release to release. 
Usually, some of the copied scripts are broken when a new release is
available, such as from 2.4 to 2.6.  To date, I have not made the effort to
remove the broken scripts.

When a script is broken, I find out by running the script and getting an error
message, such as "Error: set!: unbound variable: screen-layer".  I know how I
invoked the script from the menu, so I can edit all the scripts in my
directory to see where they put the script in the menu structure and the name
they used.  Often, I can narrow the number of scripts I have to edit to find
the correct one by using the script name as a starting point.  However, there
are a significant number of scripts that have a different file name than that
used in the menu.  Needless to say, this is a tedious and slow process.

Is there an easier way to identify a broken script file other than the process
I have outlined above?
