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?

(catch-cancel (choose-file-dialog))
The value will be :cancel if cancelled, otherwise the chosen pathname.
