anyone out there?

The alt+f2 dialog in GNOME is created by gnome-panel; it is not a
separate process.  (Typing 'xprop', or preferably 'xprop | grep -v
_NET_WM_ICON' is a good way to learn about random apps and can provide
information like this)  I'd suggest checking to see if any such bugs
are filed against gnome-panel, and if not, then file these feature
requests there.
