Closing. The parts that are fixable on RKWard's side were fixed long ago (esp. being able to close an X11() window despite an active call to locator()). Ever since we have the RK() window, this is also much less of an issue, as this handles interrupting locator(), correctly, in the first place.

The part about integrating identify() and locator() in the plot window is now tracked at https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357402 .

If you run locator\(\) without specifying a number, or identify\(1\) and can't select the required point for some reason \(it happened to me today\), you've no way obvious way of getting out of it, and R is blocked. It took me a few minutes to understand that right-click was a solution.

I think Esc should stop these commands, but also that Ctrl+C and the "Interrupt all commands" button should work too. Closing the dialog, moving to another graph, etc. should also stop them, instead of hanging.

\(One could also dream of integrating these commands into the dialog, but that's another issue. ;-\)
