iirc, it provides a proccess id. I kill the process.

thats what i do but shouldn't have to.
packagekit should respond appropriately or zypper/yast don't have the
power to shut it down and shouldn't offer the option.

Typically it delays to shutdown because the current operation should not
be stopped, ie, can not be cleanly interrupted. If it has not hung, that is.

For instance, if the tool is downloading repository metadata, and you
kill it, zypper will have to download it all again.

Or if it is writing that information to disk.
There should be a suspend and a "carry on from where you left off" option for
all downloads especially when in the download phase, it maybe a little more
difficult (or impossible) to do once its downloading.
