LOL.  I haven't had such reports yet, but when delivering robust systems 
we don't ship things with the potential for losing data in the hope that 
the user simply won't perform the action that would cause such loss, but 
aim a little higher to prevent the potential for loss altogether.

So the question seems relevant:  how can we turn off this behavior?
