Well, the box's text about save draft never made much sense to me
because it's invoked by clicking on the X button, a willful act to
discard.  Plus, if I want to save the message as a draft, there's a
button up top that I would have clicked.  That said, I do understand
the usefulness of a double check.

I think you are correct that the order in XP is counterintuitive. The
Linux order, or even the Windows standard order, makes more sense.
