This is expected. The missing ROMS/CHD message shows that the language ROM (034597-01.m3) has not been dumped, so trying to select alternative Language with an empty rom region is sufficient to freeze the game. It's not something to warrant the game not working, it's just a missing rom.

I'm resolving this now as it's behavior cannot be changed unless the rom shows up and it's not a regression or a bug (original hardware would do the same thing). The status of this might change if more information comes to light.

I'm changing this to Acknowledged/Suspended pending possible appearance of the missing ROM.

(I didn't like "Not Fixable" since it theoretically is, so I feel suspending it is a better option.)
