Me too :-) It looks like this is a bug in gui, which closes the panel but 
doesn't abort the modal session.
However, I'm not very eager to fix this bug because the idea of running a 
preference panel in a modal loop is a BIG user interface bug in the first place 
and that really should be fixed in Zipper.
