When using nsIMsgCompose.SendMsg from an extension, it is not possible to not
have it close the specified window (as specified in 2nd parameter of
Initialize). This renders this method (the only way to send an email from an
extension) nigh useless when you want to specify an editor (otherwise this
problem can be circumvented by not specifying a window at all).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In a JS extension do a 
2. Call this object's Initialize method with a handle to a window and an
instance of nsIMsgComposeParams.
3. Call this object's InitEditor method with a handle an editor object on the
window, and a handle to the window.
4. Call this object's sendMsg method with parameters that tickle your fancy (as
long as a message gets send, that is).
Actual Results:  
The window specified is closed (after the email is sent.) There is no (clear?)
way to prevent this.

Expected Results:  
Allow for an option to have the window stay open.
