Well, after having returned home with the laptop where this was
failing and doing exactly the same thing again, it now works. However
it did take several seconds before the >>> prompt appeared.
The problem seems to be intermittent as I'm calling the function while
importing images from a camera SD card and, sometimes, the import
hangs but most times it works OK.
I'll see if I can see anything common to when it hangs.
