Enhancement: avoid losing hours of work

Bug Description

When one has a corrupted database, Calibre kindly offers to rebuild it.
The rebuilding screens have a single button -- cancel -- which has the focus.
On my computer, running OSX, the rebuilding screen(s) are soon replaced by a generic sleeping or login screen.
If I want to see how the rebuild is going, almost any keystroke results in a cancellation of the rebuild, thus wasting hours and hours of processing.

My suggestion: after a certain amount of time, require a confirmation for this cancel operation.

This is the same for all versions I have used.

Thank you.

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every alternate Friday.
