2.1.9+ Rev. 15659 GTK+
The GTK nowadays sends a save command to the server when the player quits the
game (as I understand it).
There is no option to control this.
This save overwrites the save game file which has been created by the server
at the beginning of the turn (saveturns=1), usually few minutes ago.
This has drawbacks:
1. You cannot replay a turn, trying to avoid some mistake.
2. Bad for testing, bug search, analyize
I suggest to use a different name pattern for these files, such as the "m"
already in use for manual saves.
