#2162: Allow Cancel from the Stop dialog called "Name this entry"

    Priority:  Unspecified by Maintainer  |      Milestone:  Unspecified by Release Team
   Component:  sugar                      |        Version:  0.84.x

 I'm running OLPC's build os851 (10.1.2 release candidate that incorporates
 Sugar 0.84.16) on an XO-1.

 If I start an activity and Ctrl-Q by mistake, I get a "Name this entry"
 Two problems:

 1. The dialog doesn't reflect the fact that I'm about to quit, it looks
 like I'm just naming a Journal entry.  Maybe it should have the Stop icon
 in it somewhere.
 2. There's no way to say "I don't want to Stop, I made a mistake!" No
 matter what I do, the activity will exit.  This is unlike the Quit (or
 File save as...) dialog in every other OS.

 On the other hand... It seems if I resume a named Journal entry, I don't
 get a dialog. So maybe it would be inconsistent to sometimes be able to
 cancel Stopping an activity and sometimes not.
