Using MCL choose-file-dialog in CLIM is a problem

    I have written ACCEPTING-VALUES dialogs to prompt 
    users for a pathname, but if the user is using MCL,
    I would prefer to use their CHOOSE-FILE-DIALOG 
    function (it does just what I want, and looks good,

    The problem is that if you mouse on the CANCEL button,
    the CLIM frame gets cancelled, too.  

    Unwind-protect doesn't help.

    Any ideas?

I think you had better contact your support person at ILA.  This sounds
like the CANCEL button for the Mac dialog is not being intercepted at
the right level.  I noticed in an alpha version of MCL CLIM that this
happened for MAC-style menus as well.
