If it gets stuck doing something, force stopping the process is the only option. Pressing the home button will only hide the app, not quit it (unlike at idle, when pressing the home button quits or at least resets the app).

Anis, can you include a link to the commit that resolves this please? Thanks!

Whenever I hit the X it blanks the page. We should instead just show the page we were on.

Looks perfect -- does a stop() which seems to do just what we want. I did encounter a funky state on one test where internal links appeared to be triggering the external link callback, but can't reliably reproduce it.
