[OSM-dev] Grumble, grumble

Three weeks ago I submitted a patch which actually displayed a MessageDialog
an error icon and an verbose error message which explicitly says "your data
has NOT been saved on the server".

It didn't improve conflict resolution yet, but it clearly warned users of
potential problems. Bad luck that it didn't make it 
in the source tree. Perhaps it would have warned you.

Not sure, whether this is a bug in JOSM. Currently it's classified as

Hopefully only those from the first time I did it... The village of
Pattingham was looking so beautiful this morning after I repeated the edits
I lost.

I think this boils down to a bug in JOSM. If it had warned me there were
unsaved changes when I tried to exit I wouldn't have exited and my changes
would have been stored somewhere. People on IRC last night suggested I could
save to disk and edit out the deleted way that was being complained about,
until I mentioned I'd already exited.
