What to do if hangman hangs? :)

Well, that was fun :) A couple of days ago, I accidentally discovered that the simple little text-based "hangman" game on my Debian system would just freeze (with lots of disk activity) each and every time I started it up.

It turned out that a Bulgarian dictionary (or, rather, wordlist) was the reason, but the fault still lies with hangman - as witnessed by Debian bug #610270.
