Thats exactly my point. Canceling an option is an exception and is ok
on a far away button like stop (and with canceling I mean both the
meanings that float around here) but right to go _back_ and apply is
not nice.

On the other hand, there wasn't a big cry (if I think back to the
minor change of db in volume...) in the forums when this behavior was
changed, so in the end it doesn't matter much, as long as there is a
way to apply a setting with one button press of either LEFT or RIGHT,
but better would be both for me (so that I can use left again like I
used to).
