I've now checked on GNU/Linux, and the dialogs behave there in exactly
the same manner: even if you click the "X" button in the upper-right
corner of the dialog, to close the dialog, the command continues; you
need to type some character to stop it.

So I think the Windows port behaves exactly like the X version here,
with the sole exception of C-g.  I will look into fixing the C-g case
when I have time (if no one beats me to it), but other than that, I
don't think we have a problem here that needs to be fixed before the
release.  (One could argue that the fact that the command continues
after closing the dialog is a bug or misfeature on all platforms, but
since this is so at least since v21.x, and probably long before that,
I think we can safely live with it until after the release.)
