[Rd] Rgui bug in Windows: leftover download dialog (PR#7964)

In Windows, if a download is interrupted (by switching to the console window and hitting ESC), the download status dialog can be left onscreen, with no apparent way to get rid of it (other than stopping and restarting R).

To duplicate:

Run this:

a <- available.packages()
download.packages(a, 'c:/temp')

Then, during a particularly long download, switch to the console window and hit ESC.

This affects R-devel, as well as 2.1.1.
