When changing values in a testsuite menu (e.g. menu 26, submenu 1), first you
have to press return or enter "0" to leave the menu, then you must press several
times return and then you are asked if you want to keep the changed values.
The default of this question is "n", so usually if you press several times
return it's one time to often and the changes are dismissed. This is very, very

It would be better if there were two ways to leave a testsuite menu, a "OK" and
a "Cancel", where "OK" keeps the changes and "Cancel" dismisses them. As we
usually use numbers to access menu items and we don't want to change to much, we
could use "0" for OK and "99" for Cancel. This should be the same for all
testsuite menus.

It would be nice if all following "press RETURN" could be dismissed, too, so one
would just have to change values, press "0" and wait a few seconds to get back
to the main menu.

Redundant wait_for_enter calls removed.

There are only two possibilities to answer - "y" or "n".
