runaway BASIC program

In BASICtools the STOP button will halt this program starting up. What you may
be seeing is the serial buffer being flooded on the PC side and BASICtools
choking on that (trying to catch up)

You will probably have to close BASICtools and then re-open it. It effectively
does a STOP when it launches.
