Lightroom 4: Allow user to cancel the "Quit Lightroom" operation

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Accidentally quitting with cmd/cntrl-Q

When you quit LR you're given the option to backup the catalog or to skip doing the backup. You're not, however, given the option to cancel the "quit" operation.

I've lost track of the number of times I've inadvertently hit cmd-q (quit) instead of cmd-a (select all) and was forced to quit and restart LR.

It would be nice if LR4 would provide a "Cancel" button on the "Quit" popup that prompts for backup/skip.

And while you are at it, MS Outlook could use the same button!

I may be the only person who does this, but I occasionally go to close LR, and then realize I have one more thing I want to do before shutting down. However, at the time one elects to close, the only options are "Backup" or "Skip". It would be a really nice feature to be able to cancel and return to LR without having it close and need reopening. Please consider adding this feature if it is possible.
Thank you!
