About all I can suggest is that you enlarge your menu font size so that
you get a bigger space to aim at ;-)  Hitting the wrong thing will cause
you many problems worse than quitting GWorkspace and hopefully we won't
get "are you sure" panels for all menu entries.

No, but GWorkspace saves all state on quit, I think, so you get the exact
same display on restart. No work is lost.

It is easier to see that quitting terminal with open windows could cause
loss of work. I cannot see that the same is true of GWorkspace, but maybe
I have overlooked something.
