I'd like to second the motion to do something about the exit-key-handler.
The function should be called not just when you CLOSE the dialog, but
when you select another window.
I had a real problem a while back where I wanted to do validation checking on what
a user had just typed in. It was easy if he moved to another item in the
same dialog but painful if he clicked on another window. Seems to me the same fn
should be called.
