Basically, if you set _MyScriptH to 4, and use Generate Entity, you create a "hard-coded" 'Neather that just stands there making an error sound on every turn, even if the room coordinates are valid for the 'Neather-script.

Now, maybe it's my desire to perfect an "idiot proof" version of 1S, but it would be nice if the fix were to somehow get the 'Neather-script to run anyway when this happens.

The actual fix will be stopping Generate Entity from creating the 'Neather. This is consistent with not being able to place the 'Neather into a room via the editor.

Additionally, the 'Nether has no set behavior for most rooms, so the proposed fix doesn't work in the general case.
