Problems with Pygame + Replit on Chromebooks

Hi! My students are attempting to do some simple animations in Pygame using Replit. They are using Chromebooks to do this, which may or may not be relevant. They are running into frequent "Bash" errors. Is this a known problem?

Hmm. Does the game still run? I saw one of the screenshots you posted below, and I've seen those messages appear on my PyGame repls. However, for me, the game screen still pops up. Refreshing the page or forking the repl might make the error message disappear. I would post a bug report if you can't get it to work :)

@eankeen Here is a link to a sample Pygame Replit file from one of my students. It gives the error I posted earlier, but then it doesn't display any output. When I try it on my laptop the output does appear, but when he does it on his computer (Windows 10 machine using Chrome) there is no output, even if he waits several minutes.

@mvidberg Hmm. That's sort of weird. Yeah I was able to get it to work fine. The only thing that I think could be causing this is the age of your browser. Maybe it hasn't been updated in a while? I really wish I could help you more, but haven't run into these types of problems before.
