Thanks for your replies Richard and Eddy. I think I may have discovered a 'feature' of Windows 10 here. I have just done some experiments with Notepad++ v6.7.7 and Inkscape v0.91. Notepad is so advanced that an unsaved document gets saved anyway and opened up next time you open Notepad++. I think Visual Studio tends towards this level of foolproofness, too. It will give a message when you open it up asking if you would like to 'recover' unsaved files from the last session. Inkscape, however, will lose what you were working on if you haven't saved it.

When I try and close Inkscape with an unsaved document it will produce a dialog asking me if really want to close it. However, when I close Windows 10 with an unsaved Inkscape document the document is lost. I think that this dialog would have caused the shutdown process to ask for user feedback in older versions of Windows. Not so in the current version of 10.

Is it Windows policy now that all applications should save documents on the fly or users be more careful? Is it an oversight in Windows 10? May be it will be fixed soon and I won't have to write my little program...
