Yes, much better :)

However: enter meaning something different before and after
combo selection is also bad.

How it *should* work:

1. open combo (space)
2. confirm entry (enter)
3. confirm dialog (enter)

3. is missing, see https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=381254

Somebody needs to hack this up in GTK+...
