Hi Reimar!

I just had a quick look at your patch (actually at the cleaned up version in 
the gpssearch branch). Looks very nice :-) Only thing I changed is to hide the 
mode selection when the annotation dialog is opened in annotation mode, as we 
don't need the selection there (to keep the UI clean and as simple as 

Just speaking of the UI: There's a QToolButton* removeCurrentSelectionButton 
inside the KGeoMap widget connected with an action called 
"actionRemoveCurrentRegionSelection", with the text "Remove the current region 
selection". Apparently, this is intended to do the very same as your newly 
added "m_deleteSearchRegionButton" button.

(At least here) It's always disabled. Do you have an idea how to enable it (I 
didn't manage to do so ;-) This way, we could cheap out the extra button.

Cheers, Tobias
