Thank you for the kind words, it's nice to hear them. :)

Well that's bad, sorry. I did test this early on in process of adding
this feature, however I obviously changed something later that caused
the behavior you're seeing.

Yes, I had something similar at one point then removed it because I
didn't think it was needed.

Someone else reported another (cosmetic) bug in the "prompt before
building" feature today as well, so I'm going to try and get a bugfix
version out ASAP, but that may not be until tomorrow since I have some
real life responsibilities today. I'll do my best though ....
