10.4: Stop Automator actions via the menubar System 10.4
Tiger only hintThis really isn't a hint so much as it is a "hey look at that ... that's nice" kind of thing.

If you run a saved Automator "application," the status of the application will show up in the OS X menu bar. along with all of the other menu extras. You can see what the script is doing as it runs, and it also has a small stop sign icon you can use to halt the process.

I've noticed this one before, but it doesn't always work. When you run actions that are more intensive or that copy files to/from slow network drives, it becomes impossible to click the stop button as whenever you hover the stop button, the cursor changes into spinning beach ball.
