D'oh. Serves me right for committing Debugging Before Caffeination. Now I get down to Parser>>method:context: and hit the problem in the 'self statements:#() innerBlock: doit' line. Quit, restart, redo...

1246 in my current-working image but 1240 in the vanilla update #18615 image I also tested.

I'll dig deeper as time permits but the one really clear problem here is that there is no response to cmd-., a horrible thing that we must always fight to prevent. I know it can happen when the VM is having a hard time trying to write out a debug stack trace etc but I don't think I've ever known that to exceed several minutes, so my guess is this is not one of those cases.
