Woops. Here I was in the middle of a perfectly huge gigapan, and some people are walking directly into where the next column is going to be taken. So I simply pressed the button on the gigapan unit to pause the panorama (which would have been 44x15, simply huge of this lovely church at the Zentral Friedhof in Vienna, Austria.
When the people walked by, giving me odd looks, I simply pressed the button that my finger was on, expecting the panorma to restart.
Which stopped the gigapan entirely. Yikes!
This had already taken 10 minutes, my wife was already annoyed - this was the fouth gigapan of the morning! - so I abandoned it. I'd have had to delete all of these images (there was an 8 GB card in the camera, which held three other gigapans, so I didn't want to reformat it to save time), and deleting that many images on the Canon SX100 IS is, bluntly, a real pain (which is good: otherwise you end up being able to delete things too easily...).
Let this be an object lesson to anyone using the gigapan unit: PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU ARE DOING! :-)

As always with this group of gigapans, date indicated is off by one month, this was actually taken on 5 June.
Stitcher worked quite well, I think. There are some minor issues, but they have more to do with people moving around...
