"Strange Collector" not appearing

I completed Neera's quest and received the mechanical bird, however the strange collector doesn't appear.

    Where are you? The "strange collector" doesn't show up until well into ToB - the inn in Amkethran.

    In the Zephir. Tavern in Amkethran.

    All right, you're in the right place. And this one's a pretty simple script:
    	Global("OHN_SCOLL_SPWN","AR5501",0)  // Amkethran Inn
    	PartyHasItem("OHNMBIRD")  // Mechanical Bird
    	IfValidForPartyDialog("Neera")  // Neera
    	RESPONSE #100
    		SetGlobal("OHN_SCOLL_SPWN","AR5501",1)  // Amkethran Inn
    		CreateCreature("OHNSCOLL",[566.340],SW)  // Strange Collector

    Not easy for that one to go wrong. If Neera's in the party and able to talk (not silenced, polymorphed, or in any other condition that prevents it) and you have the bird, the collector shows up. Even unrecognized DLC shenanigans won't break this one. Neera does have to be present, though.

    Some other possibilities:
    - You have some other mod that's breaking the area script by adding something to the front of it, which runs repeatedly and prevents the script from getting to this block.
    - The script block ran once and glitched, setting the variable but not properly spawning the creature.

    You can at least force-spawn the collector if you have the cheat/debug console enabled, and get past this that way.

    Do you have to have the bird and Neera in the party the first time you go into the tavern? I'd been in and then went to get the bird and Neera

    First time? No, you're good if you come back later. If this were a script that only runs once like a "trap" script, that would be a problem. But this is the area script, and that runs repeatedly as long as you're there. As soon as the conditions are true, this script block will be executed.
