Also, remember now that GLX2 is open source, and that has an autosave feature as well. Remo (heretofore tRev) also auto saves if I am not mistaken.

But if for example, you lock messages at the wrong point, then the IDE is unaware, and thinks there's been no change.

I for example have just reviewed my behaviour, and it seems i've gotten used to never quit the app, and never just close stacks. Instead I save a stack, then close it, and only after each stack is closed that way, I quit. By now, I even do this in the web browser and text editor!

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.

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.
