Good to know that, I was a bit impatient and 30s isn't all that long.  
I just didn't expect that closing the preference window would get  
caught up in that.

How about Cmd-U for Update Selected Packages and Shift-Cmd-U for  
Update All Packages? I've set those via System Preferences->Keyboard &  
Mouse->Keyboard Shortcuts and they seem to work smoothly.

Good Luck,
