Losing data when quitting

Tim,
I doubt it is your imagination - and I thank you for raising this  
issue again.
If you create a new stack and put two fields on it, you'll observe  
the following:
When you open the stack the focus is on the first field you created.
If you edit that field and quit Rev your changes will not be saved  
(there will be no Save dialog).
If you leave that field with by tabbing, or clicking elsewhere on the  
stack, or clicking into the second field, or using the Enter key -  
then you WILL be asked to save the stack on quitting.
There may be other recipes as well, but the stack saving problem  
seems to be related to the lack of a closeField - which is not sent  
if the focus is still in the edited field when the stack is closed.
Is this what you are seeing?
