Text To Speech issues with Read Etexts Activity

The activity logs contain no clues.  Really no message at all.

The Activity window is present but non-responsive.  You can switch to 
the main screen using F3 (the XO equivalent activity-switching key) but 
you cannot shut down the application there.  When you switch back to 
Read Etexts the screen is blank, as if something is preventing it from 
repainting.  So the app doesn't bail out, it just hangs.  I can use 
other activities like the log viewer and the terminal no problem.

And of course nothing like this happens when testing with Xubuntu, or 
when testing the standalone app containing the same code running under 
the Terminal.
