Right, gotcha.

I thought it might have been IE - on any other browser, closing Potlatch
with unsaved changes brings up a Javascript alert, something like "Are you
sure? You have unsaved changes" etc. etc.. But I could never get it to work
in IE: the only way I could find to successfully execute Javascript from
ActionScript (to set/unset the "dirty" variable) made an annoying
link-opening clack noise every time you called it. Which made editing hugely
unpleasant and counter-intuitive.

In fact, we've been talking "patches welcome" - maybe someone could help fix
this one?

(note the IE line is commented out)

cheers
