bug#10993: 24.0.94; `yes-or-no-p' inhibits `quit' handler in `condition-case'

Suppose you had a command such as `do-XYZ', below. It does XYZ, but if
ABC is unsaved it asks you if you want to save ABC first.
The command lets you answer `yes' to save ABC first, answer `no' to do
XYZ without saving ABC first, or hit `C-g' to cancel everything (XYZ).
A user might hit `C-g' if s?he wanted to first investigate something
about ABC, for instance.
(setq ABC-not-saved t)
(defun do-XYZ (arg)
(when (and ABC-not-saved
"Save ABC before doing XYZ? (`C-g': cancel) ")
(quit (error "OK, canceled"))
(error (error (error-message-string err)))))
;; do ABC
;; do XYZ
(global-set-key [mouse-3] 'do-XYZ)
Such a command (without "e" for `interactive') works fine when bound to
a key. When bound to a mouse action (e.g. menu command) a user cannot
use `C-g'. That's the bug. When `yes-or-no-p' is invoked using a menu,
so that it asks the user using a dialog box instead of the minibuffer,
the `quit' handler in the `condition-case' is inhibited.
