Panic button - Halt browser

Sometimes i can not use 'Run in internal Browser (F9)' to check my scripts. After some debugging and rerunning scripts (without server), the button is greyed out and F9 is disabled too.
A hanging perl process seems to be responsable for this! And no timeout appears.

It may be useful to have a button to kill the currently running perl process to solve the problem of a hanging perl process. The only way running on Win2K ist to kill the process with the taskmanager.

Actually there is something like a "panic" button. Use browser / halt browser. This destroys and recreates the browser (not just "stop"), and also terminates all processes named "perl.exe".
