I tried it on my A9Home, when i use ALT-Break and stop Sigtest2, I can 
restart Sigtest2 without any appearent problem, but when I try to 
start Paint, it does not seem to start, the machine is dead, and can 
only be restarted using the red button. This situation occurs more 
with my A9 machine when something goes wrong.
