Current versions of GIMP 2.8 also note if the file has been recently exported
(with no further changes made to the image), however I do agree that if the
user has to deal with this confirmation message all the time then GIMP is
essentially "crying wolf" to their workflow and this runs a real risk of
dismissing things out of habit and losing work as a result.
On a tangent, when GIMP prompts to save changes I would rather it not remind me
how long it's been since the last (bonafide) Save command. If I'm currently
multitasking, I may open a file and make a few quick edits, then be working on
other applications for the next hour-plus. When I come back, GIMP prompts to
save. That's good and all, but the way GIMP phrases it is annoying because I
haven't actually spent the "last hour" doing work on it. I'M the one who knows
how much work I might be losing by closing it without a proper Save and in this
case it's only a minute or two tops. All GIMP has to do is remind me that
unsaved changes exist at all, not make guesses of when or how much.
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
