#6166: cancel is misleading in widgets

 this is a rather serious UI issue imho.

 Under Design / Widgets, when one clicks 'edit' for a widget, the label
 says 'cancel'. But upon clicking 'cancel', it is **not** cancelled, but
 rather, 'closed'.

 the simplest option would arguably be to switch the label to 'close',
 rather than to make it actually cancel. if we go this path, though, there
 may be a case against removing the "change" button.

 speaking of the latter, the "change" button is misleading as well: if one
 doesn't actually save changes, the changes are, in fact, lost.
