question on setting statusbar

I have a function to set the statusbar to the filename, and append a
"*" when the file has been modified:

function set_statusbar()
    local buffer = buffer
    if buffer.filename then
        text = buffer.filename
        if buffer.dirty == true then
            text = text .. "*"
        gui.statusbar_text = text
        gui.statusbar_text = 'UNTITLED'

events.connect('update_ui', set_statusbar, 1)

This works great until I save a modified file. Until I move the cursor
or do something similar, the "*" remains. I tried adding this:

events.connect('file_after_save', set_statusbar)

But this didn't have any effect. Without a cursor more, or something
like it, the "*" stayed. What can I do to have the statusbar updated
after a file save?
