Okay, works now. Thanks for the fix.

BTW, I noticed the "are you sure?" dialog popping up near to the item in
the panel. With the new dialog it might make more sense to make it
visible in the center of the screen, don't you think? There's this rule
saying that a person only has very limited view (size/radius, not sure
how to explain this) on screen and this dialog is appearing totally
outside of it, so it takes a lot more time to get aware it was opened.
