Placebo cancel buttons

Is it just me, or do many of the cancel buttons seem to be there just as a placebo?

This is most notable in cvs, the 'doing stuff' dialog has a cancel button, pressing it just result in it being greyed out, and no actual 'cancelling' taking place. I'd rather just not have a cancel button there than be so cruelly teased and mocked.

Even worse on the run/debug configuration.

If you change the name of a setup and press Cancel, the box goes away, but IDEA changes it anyway ..... :(

You probably mean cancel buttons in progress indicator windows. Should
should work fine.

It works for us. Please submit an SCR.

Hrm, it always happens for me when something odd happens in cvs (eg, network problems connecting to other server, when the socket connection is hung) in cvs windows, on windows and OSX. I'll file an issue.

not only a os x issue only Hani. I lost a connection one day and
clicked cancel, and things just sat there doing nothing.
