Hi lanas,

there are 4 possibilities which come to my mind:

1 - you're using an image which we don't know, alternately: I can see a  
message somiliar to your's only if on windows and hit alt-f4.

2 - you're indeed on windows doing alt-f4 then there is a bug

3 - the message says "Save changes before quitting?" then this is so  
because you selected plain "Quit" from the World menu. In case you did the  
latter, perhaps your mouse thinks it clicks 1-2 pixels off and the menu is  
not what you expected?

4 - I cannot reproduce the message you cite 'Quit without saving the  
image', can you tell us precisely where and what you click and what kind  
of widget is then talking to you.
