This dialog drives me nuts too. And it confuses a lot of people. You
really shouldn't have to think about such dialogs, they should be
automatic. The question in Pd is opposite of the GNOME, Windows and
Mac OS X standard panels. On Mac OS X, the standard dialog is:
"Do you want to save the changes you made in the document "Untitled"?
Don't Save Cancel Save...
I think the GNOME dialog is similar, anyone know about KDE?
