OK, I had to  look...

For a text field, see if you can call update. This may not work if the 
document has not finished repaginating. I have heard of cases where a 
document had not finished doing that before someone tried to do stuff to 
it. The solution was to tell the document to full refresh (probably 
using a dispatch).
