#144 Add button to stop latex compilation

texmakerx (141)

It happens quite often that the pdflatex compile process will not terminate.
E.g. you compile a node in a tikzpicture environment and forget to place a ";" at the end of a node definition.

Therefore a button to terminate the compile process is needed.

Here is a minimal example that will not terminate.
\node{Hello World!}

    Yes, a button could be useful, but it is not actually needed.

    You can press escape to cancel a running process (when it runs longer
    than 2 seconds).

    Oh, good to know. What if you add a message to the statusbar saying "hit escape to cancel"?

    Well, escape key just hide the log window on some of our students PC (TmX 2.1 on Windows).

    Uncheck the "Close log-view with esc-key" (shortcuts).

    But a "shortcut explicit" would help avoid conflicts on some systems ..
