Should be easy to reproduce. This breaks every UI routine that relies on WAIT(-1). Anyone else found this and either have a workaround or has reported it?

WAIT(-1) works on my G1 hardware A calculator. WAIT(-1) will pause for 60 seconds, so the second loop is not needed. Review the help on WAIT. You need to address the three return actions, a key press, mouse tap, and timeout.

  LOCAL m=0;
    TEXTOUT_P("Press a key, Esc to exit",G0,0,0);
    IF TYPE(m)==0 THEN
      IF m==-1 THEN
        BREAK 1;
        TEXTOUT_P("Key " + m + " was pressed",G0,0,50);
      TEXTOUT_P("Screen " + m + " was tapped",G0,0,50);
  UNTIL m==4;

The above code was tapped out on my phone. So, there maybe some typos. EDIT. Corrected some typos.

EDIT. The mouse tap is kind of weird, because it returns three sets of information. This allows for gestures, such as a slide to the right.
