[Lazarus] "Unitname already in project" dialog

When saving a new unit over an old one, you get an IDE dialog worded thus:

The unit "..." already exists.
Ignore will force the renaming,
Cancel will cancel the saving of this source and
Abort will abort the whole saving.

However the dialog does not have the 3 buttons implied (Ignore, Cancel, 
Abort) but two: "Force renaming", and "Cancel renaming".

I suggest the text is reworded to remove reference to Abort (or an Abort 
button is provided, or there is an indication that this refers to the 
[X] close icon), and that the reference to Ignore is altered to refer to 
"Force renaming".

There are clearly various ways to improve the wording - but there is no 
reason the provided buttons should not be better identified, along with 
their purpose.
