No, you are right. I have modified d.zoom, because I hated to accept/reject

We could add "previous region", but we don't have enough buttons on mouse.
This problem appears on many places.
Would it be possible to catch keystrokes by
R_get_location_with_pointer()? It would be also useful to have some
way, how to break running R_get_location_with_pointer() from GUI.
