Hi folks,

Thanks for addressing this!  The usual behavior of windows programs on restart 
or shutdown is to ask the user to save unsaved files, rather than saving them 
silently.  The current patch to save automatically is better than losing data, 
but prompting the user I think would be the best thing.  Or even having emacs 
abort the shutdown and give a message like "emacs cancelled shutdown due to 
unsaved files."

Dave

Yes, I tried it.  Emacs just auto-saved the changed buffers with no questions 
asked.

Done as git commit 6435f41.  Thanks for your help, Eli.

Closing.
