Closes the filter dialog boxes for SRT modules when the user generates the SRT list.
I'm assuming this is better behavior?  It's certainly preferred by 
me.  There is, at best, an equal number of clicks to refocus the SRT 
filter window as there is to generate a new window (one) and at worst 
several more, so I'm not sure that having it stick around is 
advantageous for users that want to launch a barrage of SRT lists for 
a single protocol.  It's definitely annoying to users that only want 
to generate one SRT list at a time.
I have doubts, that the current model of having two dialogs is a good idea at all.
It might be better to have one dialog, which includes the filter and 
additional widgets (maybe hideable by a details button or such).
