never experienced such an error...
- please install 1.3.8... it's the latest version...
- can you try to press the ESC key to close the dialog?

i just tried to open and close the "character palette" on os x and i 
didn't find any problem in closing it with the red button, nor with the 
ESC key...

let's see if an update and the ESC solves the problem for you...
