I think you're right--it's a bug. No other application I know of  
works this way. If you do Close - Save - Cancel it exits the save AND  
the close process and puts you back in the document.

And it looks like RunRev agree with you. I just tried it in the 2.9  
beta, and it works as expected--the stack doesn't close. In 2.8.1 it  
worked as you described--after Close - Save - Cancel the stack closed.
