If you have "all direction lines" selected, it will probably do what
you expected.  The default is for that to be not selected, which means
you're limited to 45 and 90 degree lines, making Shift-P refuse to
close the polygon unless it can close it with a 45 or 90 degree line.

Clicking on the start vertex a second time will close the polygon
(subject to the above conditions) but hitting the exact spot depends
on your grid settings ;-)
