Unfortunately we can't see it.

Now, I could see it among a bunch of HTML when I checked it in the
moderator queue, so I'm guessing you sent it as some kind of
attachment and the server has stripped it off.

Please resend the code pasted into the body of the email.

I don't know about the crash, but the freezing may be
because it needs to run in a separate thread. Anything
that takes a long time to process in a GUI should be
done in a background thread. (I don't know if you are
familiar with threads yet, but they are a kind of
lightweight background subprocess that allows your
program to do two things at once.)

But without seeing the code that is just a guess!
