Perhaps we should be more detailed and mention that 'properly' means the
Semantic Bank should be visible when browsed to, and that 'stopping' is
something along the lines of ctrl-C.

Have you added anything to your bank? The SB screenshot on the home
page is of one that's been used heavily. A new, empty bank has no tags,
no starting points (because there's no data), and not particularly
interesting typed data (classes, properties, etc.). What do you mean by
'no descriptive labels?' To me, that sounds like the ontologies haven't
been loaded, but I'm not sure what indicates to you that no descriptive
labels exist.

Is your instance of SB running in a public location? Can we see it?

I feel like you're trying to chase down a problem that doesn't exist.
Forgive me if I've seriously misunderstood, but nothing you've mentioned
seems out of the ordinary to me.
