It's true that the operation can take a long time, but in that case a progress window appears and allows the user to cancel. I guess this might not have been in place when you disabled the doubleclick? Is avoiding accidental diffs still important enough to warrant the option?

I tested that before disabling them, but was not able to copy the text in those boxes...
Anyway, I did it because I could not get the dialog to start with focus on the main list. I've now managed this, so the stops are restored.

I agree, but I've not been able to catch NM_RETURN. I found a few similar complaints on the web, and the only fix described was using OnOK. Any suggestions are appreciated...

Most is from ShowContextMenuForRevisions, but there it's interleaved with context menu code, so I don't see how to make a common version.
