I think this should be solved in a different fashion: The dialog
already says "CPU halted", but in fact it does not halt the CPU.
When the CPU would have really been stopped, there would be no further
exceptions - and the user could decide whether to bring up the main GUI
or to reset the emulator via shortcut or to quit directly or to enter
the debugger.

Nicolas, what do you think?
