I've never seen the behavior you report, but inspection suggests that an
extra check would not hurt.  E.g., before the 'if f is None' above, adding:

    if f is None:
        f = self._v_f

should do the trick.  If you can generate a patch for this, which
includes a test (calling 'script._p_deactivate()' should mimic the
behavior you are seing), I would be glad to merge it (assuming you don't
have SVN privileges).
