Its annoying that I still have to go back to the mouse to verify the appropriate action and would much rather be able to select it from the FP.
Reaper's preferences allows you to disable that prompt. Additionally with the updated FaderPort dll you can tell the stop button to perform any action or set of actions by placing them in a custom action and firing the custom action with the button via the INI file. Let me know if you have any problems.

One thing I have noticed is that you should completely remove the existing faderport/csurf.dll, add the faderport version and restart reaper. If you don't Reaper can and will load the wrong one even though you think it is the faderport version. I could probably find a way to compile the new one so this doesn't happen but haven't found it. So if you set this all up and it acts like nothing is working, remove the orignal DLL from the folder, then remove re-add faderportXT in reapers control surface options and you should be good to go.
