Corion,
It turns out that the recent google chrome updates are the cause of the problem. The newer version stops responding immediately after you execute the script.
I downgraded chrome to an earlier version and things are back running normally.

    Would you please share the Chrome versions in question here? Both the last one that appears to work and the one that you believe broke things?

    I use Corion's distribution here from time-to-time, and am about to deploy it for some tests at work in the coming week or so. I'd like to do some testing on the issue before I have our guys deploying software.

      Stevieb,
      Chrome version 94.0.4606.81 (64-bit) is the one that is causing the problem. I had to downgrade to version 91.0.4472.123 to resolve the problem, but I am sure that version 93 have worked for me before.

        This is weird. On my Windows PC I also have 94.0.4606.81 and there the test suite passes without problems and your program as well.

        So it must be some other configuration component that causes the trouble, but if downgrading works for you maybe you can find out the exact difference...
