I am not ignoring. It is a matter of time and prioritisation.
The current solution works adequately; if you used 3.0, you couldn't close the popup by clicking in the background. I added that in to 3.1 as it's something I could do quickly.
The next release is all about completing the integration back into BuddyPress, which has been the most requested feature. After that, it'll probably be widgets (the second most requested feature). When I get this far, we'll see what's important to addresss next.
