hung for good?

Is it possible to give Mathematica (4.0) an expression to evaluate that will
send it into an infinite loop? (The evaluation itself does not contain any
loops.) Or does it have some way of knowing when it's "stuck"? I realize
some evaluations may take a very long time... but is there some way of
knowing whether any progress is being made while I'm waiting?

Thanks in advance,
