oops, my mistake.

I actually have the line
(setq buffer-offer-save t)
in my code for new-empty-buffer, but emacs still closes the buffer
without saving, seemingly contrary to its doc.

The solution i made, is to create a close-current-buffer which offers
to save.

The snipped of code is here:

   ;; offer to save buffers that are non-empty and modified, even for
non-file visiting buffer. (because kill-buffer does not offer to save
buffers that are not associated with files)
   (when (and (buffer-modified-p)
              (not isEmacsBufferBefore)
              (not (string-equal mode-name "Dired by name"))
              (not (string-equal mode-name "Dired by date"))
              (not (string-equal "" (save-restriction (widen) (buffer-
     (if (y-or-n-p
            (concat "Buffer " (buffer-name) " modified; Do you want to
       (set-buffer-modified-p nil)))

The complete code, again, is here:
