Sometimes (not yet well-defined) I try to stop a loop, (either because 
it's running some wrong code or because the loop will take days or 
hours) with alt-comma but it keeps going. More than once I have had to 
shut the whole system off. Granted, Microsoft does not provide a 
competent universal interrupt (which the 35-year-old Tops-10 did very 
nicely) but maybe Mathematica can be modified to stop more easily. ?? Is anyone 
else bummed by this?
