reproduceable livelock (?) in R13B04

I've reproduced the 100% cpu livelock on R14B01. It took just over 30
minutes, which is perhaps why previous posters did not notice it.

I reproduced in on R13B04 also but noticed a further behavior, if you
leave it long enough after it goes 100% cpu, it comes back out of it.
It seemingly enters and leaves this state cyclically.

As this is unfixed in the latest release, I felt obliged to post (hope
this appears threaded with the original messages, I joined the mailing
list after the original posts).
