Photoshop: UI hang in Color Halftone plugin

I opened the Color Halftone plugin, and used cmd-tab to switch to another application before I finished entering my values. When I cmd-tabbed back, the Progress indicator for the halftone plugin had popped up even though the plugin's input panel was still open; the cancel button on the progress indicator does nothing (presumably waiting for color halftone to finish) but I also can't focus the color halftone panel to finish inputting my values or press OK. Any action in the app's UI just causes it to emit an error beep. cmd-. and Esc do nothing as well.

The Photoshop menu also shows "About Mondo Filter..." when I try opening it to get the "About Photoshop" screen.

This is on Photoshop CC 2019 20.0.1.

Hi Fluffy, I can't repro offhand. I'm on version 20.0.2 which came out last week, which may be the difference.

Okay, I'll update to 20.0.2 and see if it happens again. It may have also just been a fluke when it did happen.

Thanks. If you find consistent steps to repro, I'd love to try them!
