Why do some tasks take a long time to build?

AppleScript tasks may take a longer than expected time to build if they target a non running application. In order to resolve command terminology any applications targeted with a tell block have to be launched. If the task is being built on the local machine then the application launch will be detectable via a bouncing application icon in the dock. If the task is being built on a remote machine then no such indication will be visible.
