Open a console with either the device connected or the simulator and see what calls are made when the allow button is pressed

I have (manual inclusions) the Browser widget, the JSON and Oauth2 libraries, and the internet library. The call to Oauth2 is wrapped in a try block, and I'm not seeing a catch (can't be sure that I would, but when I use the new emergency cancel, my script just reports "Not authorised" where if I drop the Oauth2 library, I get a dialog reporting the catch).
