Possibly related to #673.

This is happening because there is no "event" device yet for that OS (so there is no actual WAIT happening.)

Normally, the event device is part of the GUI system. However, it may be possible to implement some kind of minimal event method for Posix systems that we can use until the GUI is running.

I am experiencing the same problem on Linux.

What would be needed for the "minimal event method" for POSIX systems you mention? I'd be willing to work on such a thing.
