Summary:
Sometimes when Roadnav is asked to give directions from the current GPS position to a location, it will lock into a loop where it recalculates constantly (as soon as one calculation finishes, the next one starts). The program has to be hard killed. If you relaunch the program without moving and ask for the same directions, it'll lock up again.

Steps to reproduce:
1) Power on GPS and wait for fix
2) Connect GPS to computer
3) Start Roadnav
4) Wait for Roadnav to plot position
5) Ask Roadnav give directions
6) Roadnav calculates the directions
7) Roadnav recalculates the directions
8) GOTO 7

What should happen:
1) Power on GPS and wait for fix
2) Connect GPS to computer
3) Start Roadnav
4) Wait for Roadnav to plot position
5) Ask Roadnav give directions
6) Roadnav calculates the directions
7) Roadnav is then ready to run the route
