If I save the fluid file, then change the shortcut for a menu item then hit ^S (save), the .fl file is not saved.

Further, one can quit fluid without being warned changes were made, causing the change to be lost.

Fixes suggested:

    o Changing a shortcut should mark the fluid file 'unsaved'

    o If the user hits ^S and there's nothing to save, the user
      is not told nothing was saved. In the case of this kind of bug,
      the user thinks they saved something when nothing actually
      happened. Maybe the solution is to post a dialog warning
      the user no changes were made, so there's at least some
      feedback no save occurred.

Amen on that.

-1 on that :) .  Hopefully, FLUID can be made to do the Right Thing(tm) without these extreme measures.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

Please post if you find any more of these "modified" flag issues. I know of one more, but I am unsure if "fixing" those makes sense or is rather annoying: changing the selected widget will not mark the document dirty, even though this information *is* saved in the .fl file.
