Well, the way it works at the moment (in sane browsers) is that Potlatch
sends a message via JS every time the dirty flag is set/unset - so the JS
dirty variable is always up-to-date. That's what causes the click, and
that's why it happens regularly throughout editing.

onBeforeUnload appears to have (sensibly) too many safeguards built in to
allow Potlatch to refuse a window close (for the user to enter a comment),
though I might be missing something.

Suggest we continue this one on IRC or private mail. :)
