Sitelet.Embed calls Content.ToResponse which calls Async.RunSynchronously. If the call to Async.RunSynchronously happens in the thread with AspNetSynchronizationContext and asynchronous action uses Async.SwitchToContext to ensure AspNetSynchronizationContext then the program deadlocks.

This can be fixed by using Content.CustomContentAsync and Content.ToResponseAsync in Sitelet.Embed instead of Content.CustomContent and Content.ToResponse.

Thanks for the catch! I don't know what I was thinking when I wrote this.
