[time-nuts] Timelab question

I apologize.  I was mistaken in my question.  Under wine it behaves poorly, but that's to be expected.  Under XP in a Virtual box, it works as you say.  The same in a real Win 10 box.  The problem is actually that I was expecting the "No" box to be checked, and to require the user to change it to "Yes" if he really wanted to exit.  So, if I press the Enter key to get rid of the dialog box, the program exits.

Hmm.  I can't repro this on Win7 x64 -- what version of Windows are you running?

If I hit Escape followed by Enter, it does exit, since 'Yes' is the default choice.  But hitting Escape twice doesn't do anything (and shouldn't).
