Fixed for the next update. The problem was that the PAUSE handler was using inputKey() to wait for the user to press a key to end the pause, but this function can't be used in a network game because it reads directly from the local keyboard. The local keyboard isn't available in network mode, so inputKey() triggers an End Of File exception, and that's what causes the untimely termination of the game. The solution is to replace the call to inputKey() in the PAUSE action handler with a call to inputManager.getKey(), so that we wait for the remote user to press a key in the browser UI.
