I assume it hangs only because it is running the tm_dialog command  
synchronously -- running that asynchronously should work (and using  
⌃C or ⌘. should break it more gracefully than force quit).

That said, I just remembered that font and color panels are  
autonomous entities which signal the first responder when they see a  
change. So they do not follow the “request a font/color” model,  
rather you open the panel, and someone just listens to changes, and  
that someone can change, while the panel is up. So I don’t think  
this would really work with tm_dialog.
