I kind of agree with the sentiment here-- when "logout" is one of the
options, having the button read "logout" whichever option you've chosen
just makes it look kind of broken.
I don't think changing the button dynamically is necessarily the best
solution, though, as that complicates life for people who use
screenreaders. Having the generic "OK" button that covered all bases
would probably be acceptable in this case, either that or redesigning
the dialog to be more like the Windoze XP one where there's one button
for each possible action.
