Bug#257686: bibview: Major loss of data -- no save on exit

Package: bibview
Version: 2.2-8
Severity: important

If you enter data into bibview,
and then click the [x] box of the window manager,
you will lose all unsaved data.

Perversely, you need to click two save buttons:
one for the individual record (to save it into
the database) and one for the database (to write it
to a file).

Bibview should either pop up a "Unsaved data.  Exit Y/N."
box when exiting with unsaved data.
Failing that, it should have a large and clear indicator
on the main window that there is unsaved data.
Failing that, it should write out a copy of  the database.

I've lost minor amounts of work several times, because
the behaviour of bibview is so unexpected.
