Cancelling operations

Some windows have cancel buttons, but various actions inside a window pane
may launch a massive parsing operation and launch a further little dialog -
such as when modifying source modules... there's no way to stop this
operation unless you kill the IDEA process - the little "x" doesn't close
the dialog and you can not gain focus of the parent window.

Which operations do you mean?

In Modules, when you Add a Content Entry, it scans the all sub directories
for source files. Then, when applying these changes, it then pops up a
dialog titled "Loading Files..." with the message "Parsing files. Please
wait..." - you can't cancel this, it's a real pain.

Also most network tasks (like fetching an external URL) have this kind of problem: clicking on "cancel" does nothing and most of the time IDEA hangs there forever.

"Opening project" too - there's no way to cancel it if I change my mind in the middle. I've opened a request for that (http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=23585) but got no responces so far
