"End of Task" Dialog Update

We would like to request a change in the current workflow. When a task has entry and exit conditions which cause the last dialog in the task to be skipped a confirmation box appears stating, ‰ÛÏYou have reached the last dialog of the task. Do you want to finish the task?‰Û.

We do understand why the box appears. Since the last dialog is not displayed they do not see the ‰ÛÏClose‰Û button which could lead them to believe they will be able to continue editing the task.
BUT, the current set up does not make much sense. To a user it is very confusing. Why are they only seeing this pop up notice in some taks and not others? Secondly, nowhere does it state that once you ‰ÛÏClose‰Û a task that you will not be able to go back.
All together it is very unclear.
