I broadly agree with that - and without my solution, I would find these 
hangs VERY frustrating!

I think I can understand if hangs happen while user code is executing, 
but on occasions, this can happen for no obvious reasons - Mathematica 
is just starting up!

I think it would be great if we could get a discussion of this at the 
forthcoming technology conference.
