Thanks, John. That will certainly get it to work as I expect it to. I doubt I'm the only one who's lost a dataset due to being distracted and hitting the enter key to clear the dialog box.
Wine is just a mess as far as Timelab is concerned. Most of the time it doesn't display the plot area. I've pretty much given up on it.

I see what you mean. I've got a couple of other minor tweak requests lined up for the next beta, so I'll add MB_DEFBUTTON2 to those prompts to keep that from happening.
If Wine is interpreting a second Escape keypress as 'Yes', then that's definitely a bug on their part. Worth reporting to them if it still happens in the current version.
