Well, the current behavior (completely ignoring the Power key during
recorded playback) is confusing, but admittedly so can be the new one
as well.  It would be more consistent to ask for confirmation up-front
in any case (no matter if live or recorded playback) and replace the
confirmation message with a warning if a timed recording or a cutting
is in progress.

That makes sense.
