  > I would probably not make the button that big
  There are two reasons why it is so big:
  1. It's handy. You do not have to move the mouse, no matter which button was clicked
  2. It "covers" both buttons to avoid a re-start of any such action without the need to disable them
  The first is of course the main reason.
  > That always leads to evil things, like e.g. what happens if you press the X button of the view/window during that.
  Assumed the changes you want are done, I have problems to understand in which way this will avoid that the Close-Window button can be clicked. For a working Cancel button you have to call in some way the event loop, even direct as currently, or indirect due to some suspend from the current work.

  As you know, I'm a bit "slow" at times, Your instructions are not sufficient for me how to do that.
