Yeah. I found that after trying your example. But that one's a tight
recursive loop without yielding any time for system tasks. I wish we
had a real interrupt trapped by the engine, but I fear it's just being
handled (or not) by a frontscript, and that's never getting called
because you used all the cpu's power.

I'm actually not that surprised by command-period not working in this
case, but I am surprised by the lack of recursion control and I'm
still scratching my head about the cpu usage...
