That's very bad; CTest should be disabling this dialog, because this
is going to happen often. Unless our tests are doing something to
re-enable the dialog?

Oh, and here's a really dumb question: how long did you leave the
program running with this dialog open? IIRC, CTest has an internal
timer and will kill a test after some number of seconds.
