The terminal needs to be connected to something, and as it does not
find this connection, it terminates. Change the last part like this:

local term = l:new_channel();
l:start({ log = term }, "rom/hello");
e = l:start({ caps = {
                fb = mag_caps.svc:create(L4.Proto.Goos, "g=640x480"),
                term = term:svr(),
