Summary 0007477: Close box no longer allows exit from squeak.
Description This is about a VM feature request:

The proper behavior is it should suspend all squeak activity except for a dialog allowing the user the choice of quitting without saving or canceling the close request.

On a Ubuntu system I had to go into the terminal to explicitly kill the process. That was the only way out of the situation.

laza resolved this in the related report. I don't think it was ever actually a vm problem.
The close box had once closed squeak without a dialog. That did not save your work.
Then it was fixed so it didn't close squeak without a dialog. That did not lose your work.
Now it is fixed to put a dialog up that allows one to close squeak and save, close squeak and not save, or cancel the close operation.

Goldilock's is very pleased. Problem solved.

I was under the imagination that you would like the linux vm to behave the same way as the windows vm on closing the squeak window.
But I happily mark this bug as resolved/no changed required! :)

Right Goldilocks? ;)

Hi laza,

Actually I was okay with the first behavior where the close box always closed without saving. Of course that's not safe.

I last used a mac and the only option the mac file menu allowed me was close without saving. Of course if I didn't want to do that I wouldn't close sqeuak from the mac menubar.

I wonder what the windows vm allows?

The current solution (dialog) I think would please anybody. I can see the benifit of not being allowed to absentmindedly lose my work.

As its the middle of the road, the current solution is one a Goldilock's (or little bear) would approve. Which is why I said that.

Anyway, good work and thanks. I don't think anything more is needed.

Your is curiosity and service, --Jerome Peace
