To clarify: After the load process "gets hung up", apparently in the
preamble of Compiler-ar.70, the image is fully responsive. Neither the
image nor the VM is hung up, it's just that that load process has stopped
and an MCMergeBrowser with title "Merging Compiler-ar-70" has opened.

Sorry, I don't have a way to post an image right now.
