I think that answer dialog fix 11234 for the iOS 7 simulator also fixed my
app not loading on the iOS 7 simulator. Thanks for saving me the time of
nailing this one down! The answer dialog was not my specific problem. Don't
know what caused my hang and don't care now.

Thanks again to the RR team and all the OS engine contributors!
