There is as far as I know no way of doing this.
All movements within a script get "batched" together an executed without 
updating the screen for each part of the script.
This is sometimes wanted for speed, but it also complicates stuff while 
bug tracking.
A way to step trough each command would be cool, as well as a 'wait' 
command that could pause execution within a script.
