Hi Johannes,

What does "closes the module" mean?

Make the module disappear :-)
(either with "save changes and close window" or "do not save changes and
close windows")

the only way to abort a module is via the window decoration

No. This impression might be result of my English :-)
Maybe it would be more understandable if it says:

If the user presses the "Cancel" button or the "Close" symbol in the
window decoration
the module will be closed.

Functionality of "Cancel"

I think you made a good point:
The functionality currently described in the style guide does not
reflect the behavior in the majority of most modules :-(
Currently "Cancel" aborts the whole module regardless of the dialog
type. Maybe this does not reflect the most usable behavior but currently
it is that way.

I suggest that you make some kind of "glossary" about
the exact meaning of the words which you use to describe
the functionality of a dialog element and of the words
which you use to label a dialog element (e.g. a button).

I would rather like to see a document which is so understandable that no
glossary is needed :-)

For example what exactly is meant with an "abort" functionality?

Do not save changes and exit the module.
