I tested it here (Mac OS X 10.4.2 if that matters) with Rev 2.6 and  
it worked fine. I had to set it searching a vast number of stacks  
before I could get to the keys fast enough, but I made it in the end  
and was able to interrupt it. It then gave me the list of items it  
had found so far.

The "Find" button in the Find & replace window specifically sets the  
allowInterrupts to false which is weird, especially as the comment  
above one of the lines setting it to false says "  --allow user  

You may like to edit this so that you can interrupt it, although as I  
said, it works for me.
