This is a known bug, but there's a workaround for it... The game right now locks up if the witch is supposed to appear on that screen. To get around the crash and proceed with the game, just wander around the other screens of the forest until she appears, and then solve the puzzle as you need to and proceed. Hopefully the bug will get fixed soon.

Dunno if it's cause I'm using the latest daily build, but I didn't have any problem with it freezing on me within the Witches forest. Played the sequence all the way through without any problems.
