Q: when is a quit confirmation dialog shown?

Sometimes LowRes NX pops up a “Do you really want to quit this program?” confirmation dialog when I exit a BASIC program, and sometimes it doesn’t. What makes it decide to show this dialog?

I believe it depends upon how much time you have spent in a section.. this helps to remind you to save any changes you may have made

It's super intelligent ;)
Well, it appears when the program uses touch control and runs for at least a minute.

The idea is that in programs using the gamepad you almost cannot tap "exit" by accident. And in under a minute you probably didn't do anything super important. But imagine you use a tool for 30 minutes without saving and then you tap accidentally the exit button. Actually this happened to desbyc, so I added the dialog.
