The cancel dialog for the other location will show up after you close
the password dialog. Of course, its pretty rare that you open two
locations at the same time, one with a password dialog and one that
hangs. It might even be right in this situation to delay the cancel
dialog, since getting two dialogs at the same time for different things
is sort of confusing. :)
