severity 578624 minor

Hello Christoph,
I'm setting severity to minor -- this is a use-case I've rarely seen, and 
doesn't really affect JOSM's usability.

Why can't you do Alt+F2 → josm ? :)
Or, if you want to close the shell, why not clicking the icon? ;)

I'll try some googling as soon as I have a bit more time.

Sorry for not being much helpful.
