Yeah, I think you're right. If it had been opened, you might get the
cancel dialog a small while after the auth dialog, which would cause the
cancel dialog to grab focus while you're typing in the auth dialog -
basically the same problem we have (had) today. So I think it seems like
a sane, although somewhat hackish, solution :)
