Re: Canceling dialogues

    If you use the menus in Emacs to call a function and this function for 
    example calls y-or-n-p then a popup dialog will be shown (if 
    use-dialog-box is t). This dialog box can not be canceled, at least not 
    on w32.

    I think this is a bug and that a third alternative for canceling should 
    be added.

Normally you can type C-g in the Emacs window to quit out ofthe
dialog.  (I don't know whether this works on Windows.)  Nonetheless,
adding "Quit" as an alternative would not be a bad thing -- for all

Would someone like to do that?
