Unfortunately, it's intermittent and not reliably reproducible.  I'm not
at all sure what causes it.  I'll try it next time I get it, though.

Frankly, I doubt it's infinite recursion - CPU usage is 0.  I'm more
inclined to think there's a deadlock somewhere, or it's waiting for
something that doesn't notify...  And it's not really hanging, either, in
that it gets Windows events and reacts to buttons correctly...
