In looking for REPL (it's in the Cuis base as Transcripter > 
readEvalPrint) I found a new way to get a hang-up. In a workspace do:

(Transcripter newInFrame: (0 at 0 extent: 100 at 200))
     nextPutAll: 'Hello there'; endEntry;
     newLine; print: 355.0/113; endEntry;

...and the clock stops. 'top' reports 100 %CPU for squeak.
