I'm fairly certain that the code I gave will do what you want.  Looking back at your original code, and plugging in the missing incrementers, I believe the problem is simply that the loop executes to completion so quickly that your break is not hitting inside the loop.  Try bumping up the max iterations of the -while- loop to 1e5 or the limit of the inner loop to 1e5, and you should get the behavior you're expecting.
