Cancel dialog buttons' wording is confusing

Bug #195083 reported by Gabriel Speckhahn on 2008-02-24
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
brasero (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: brasero

When clicking the "Cancel" button to interrupt a burning session, Brasero presents the following dialog:

"Do you really want to quit?"

Interrupting the process may make disc unusable.
                                     [*Cancel*] [Continue]

It may make users confused, as they may not know if clicking "Cancel" will cancel the recording or their request, and "Continue" (the button to actually stop it) may mistakingly lead them to believe Brasero will continue burning, not cancel it, leading to possible data/media loss.

"OK, I changed all this into
["Continue burning"] ["Cancel burning"]
This should make things clearer.
Thanks for the bug report."

Can I add a "me too" and suggest the fix gets included into an update? I've just toasted a CDRW due to being confused , now all I have to do is work out how to get my new shiny coaster out of the drive :-(
