I found this impossible to close dialog box to be a real 
headache too, especially when manually ejecting dirty or 
scratched discs... or in my case, my keyboard has a shortcut 
to the drive eject function which by habit I must tape over 
when running MPLAYER, ... or be forced to struggle with 
shutting down the MPLAYER app & re-starting it thru Task 
Manager each time if I accidentally press it!

hope to see a patch out for this soon.
