 A way to reproduce it that is useful for debugging:

 power on with the rotate button held

 Cforth:  ok dbg ofw

 at the same time that you type the enter for the CForth command, drag your
 finger across the clicky keyboard to generate rapid-fire events (bouncing
 on the ESC key is harder to do quickly enough to cause a failure).

 Now you can inspect the SP state from CForth.
