Yes, that would make sense to me, too.

A checkbox like "Keep dialog after commit" (with the existing "Keep locks" and "Keep changelists") sounds useful to me.

Yes, I wasn't aware of this - I thinks this is what I have been looking for.

A "Keep dialog after commit" checkbox in the Commit dialog still makes sense to me though.

I do not think changelists are fitting my requirements, though I have never used them really. It would be more useful, if it worked more like Git's index, where you add hunks rather than paths; it does not seem like you can commit only parts of a file (without temporarily saving the "indexed" state before committing).

Thanks for your reply, and the others as well,
