problem with orca+magnifier under Gutsy

Alt+F4 means to close/kill the currently focused window.  The magnifier 
really isn't a window that gets focus, so pressing Alt+F4 will kill the 
window that has focus (e.g., your e-mail application, like I just did 
when I couldn't remember what Alt+F4 did).

Killing the magnifier is similar to killing speech: you need to exit 
Orca or tell Orca to stop magnifying the window.
