Confirmation to save does not work when clicking "OK" compared to the 'X'.

This can be seen after changin options under Toos -> Options -> Look and Feel -> Confirm changes to an item before closing it.

Here's my rationale for this...

  - If you press OK or Cancel you are essentially telling the program to save or toss your data
  - If you press "Close" it is vague - so I ask you if you really intended to save/toss the data

My overall philosophy with the program is to try to minimize the number of times I interrupt the user's workflow, so even with confirm dialogs I use them only when the meaning is not clear or you are performing a major operation.
