Killer program

If you type the following into the read-eval-print loop:

(when-port-readable (current-input-port) (lambda() (/ 0 0)))

and hit Enter twice, you get an infinite loop of flashing empty
STk error windows and error messages in the r.e.p. loop window.
Depending on the system, it can be hard to type enough input to
kill the process. A Ctl-C will stop the flashing, but may leave
the STk process in a cycle-sucking non-responsive state.

This is STk VERSION=3.1, with either Linux 1.2.1 or HP-UX.
