If you use the identify tool and miss a feature, the "identify results" window disappears and a modal dialog 'no features at this position found' pops up. The user then has to go click the 'ok' on that before doing anything else.
[ It's even more of an annoyance because the OK dialog always appears top-left of my screen - I suspect its not parented properly. There's a few dialogs do this ]
Wouldn't it be better for the "identify results" window itself to show a message "No features found at this position". One less modal dialog is a good thing...
