Well, I added the "Reset" buttons to the ImageMap tools when cleaning up
their ui (spinbuttons instead of text entries). The "Curves" dialog already
had one and adding them to the rest of the tools was much less code
changing than the ui cleanup...
But what's with their position in the action area? I thought it would
be intuitive if "OK" was always next to "Cancel" and in an attack of
consistency-fanticism I did the same in File->New.

Definitely. Expect the default to be changed with my next checkin!!

You mean [ "OK" "Reset" "Cancel" ] as it was before... I must admit this
sounds just as logical as my "OK next to Cancel" idea.
Aren't there some GNOME ui guidelines? At least I didn't find any.
We should agree on a definitive action area layout, what about another
boring poll ?-)

please vote:

1) "OK" leftmost, "Cancel" rightmost [ "OK" "Reset|Whatever" "Cancel" ]

2) "OK" next to "Cancel" [ "Reset|Whatever" "OK" "Cancel" ]

I volunteer to browse all dialogs and change them if I get any votes ;-)
