Ctrl-F4 closes the current MDI window, Alt-F4 closes the app window
(just a reminder ;)

That's not necessary: if you hit cancel, the log message you've entered
is still added to the log message history combo and available next time
you start the commit dialog.

One problem of having ESC closing the window: the esc key is used in
Scintilla (and many, many other text editors too btw) to close the
autocompletionlist, close the infotip text, ...
So I have to write a check if nothing like that is currently visible
before having the dialog closed when the user presses ESC.
