This sounds like the watchdog activating. The same thing in ChucK
wouldn't give you any option box, so try running ChucK with the same
jack settings and -v (or --verbose) as a flag. It should say
"counter-measure watchdog activating," which is the same thing as what
the mini dialog is basically saying. Note that I don't actually know
what the problem is, but this will tell you if it's a problem with the
mini or just that you're not seeing the message appear in command-line
ChucK because of lower error settings.
