I am not sure I fully understand what you are saying. I don't have the 
impression that in the code samples we wrote we were locked in any 
control block.
Can you provide more details with your example ?

To answer one question (which may not be yours), if a JS code is stuck 
in a while(1), then, events are never handled. In that situation, 
XMLHttpRequest events or server-sent events are particular cases of 
events which won't be handled as well.
