Please don't.  Existing behaviour conforms to standard practice for 
Linux.  I do however suggest updating the documentation for message box 
to make this behavior explicit, ie, add a note to the effect:

    Closing the message box window using the window close button will
    perform the cancel action:  the message box will close and return
    the index of the last button.

I know, that wording is awkward and needs work but you get the idea.
