I just came across another instance of a pet peeve of mine. I lost a
couple of hours of scripting work because for some reason that isn't
clear to me the IDE doesn't always save everything when you exit. It
asked me if I wanted to save and I confirmed that I did, yet a bunch
of coding changes didn't make it. The changes weren't in my
application main stack but in another main stack containing scripts
that I insert as front scripts. Both stacks were loaded into memory
at the time I exited.
I've been aware of save problems like this for a while and try to save
things manually at regular intervals but didn't do so on this
occasion. But really, should a modern day development environment
allow you to exit without saving your work unless you specifically
tell it not to? That seems like a huge bug to me.
