I'm quite new to (really) clocking my time (4 weeks or so). But I must admit I
never know what to answer to the above question, when presented to me.

I did not take time to look at it further, being completely under pressure and
stress this month. And I currently resolve it by diff'ing my Org times that
are under SVN... But that's not clean.

For sure, better words should be chosen. Maybe an extra option (`?') could be
added for describing, in one sentence (like you do here), what every possible
answer really means.
