default button behaviour & shortcuts

Tortoise doesn't always follow the windows shortcuts & default button
behaviour within it's dialog windows.
e.g.: in the "lock files" dialog window,

- the focus starts in the "Enter a msg describing why..." field (i'll
refer to this as the "comments box")
- the <OK> command button below is the default button (dark edge around
button indicates this)

the expected (default windows) behaviour would be:
- pressing <Enter> should trigger the clicked event on the <OK> button -
instead, it adds a CR/LF to the "comments box"
- pressing <Ctrl + Enter> should add a CR/LF to the "comments box",
instead it triggers the clicked event on the <OK> button.

This is one example of how Tortoise doesn't follow the window standards. i
realise this is a probably very unimportant as a bug, but it adds to the
annoyances-factor. If you can make this change consistently throughout the
application, i'm sure a lot of people will do a lot less cursing &
swearing ;-)

Thanks for the otherwise excellent tool!!
