    I, too, am seeing a "hang" at "test, count:10" (under Activestate 5.12.4/Windows XP). And I must note that I'm not seeing that "hang" under Ubuntu-"Natty Narwhal".

    I used AS 5.10.1 on Windows above. I just tried it with AS 5.8.9 and it blocks as you describe.

    I do not have an explanation for that, but the work-around is obvious. Upgrade.
