Charles this happens when saving what you are about to post (0.13.0)

Before you post a reply try a Save as... of the message.

e.g. Save as... Type t.txt in the dialogue box and hit Enter. cat t.txt
and you'll see you have saved the message.

Try another Save as... to t.txt. Hit enter. You will overwrite the file
without being asked. Or any other file that already exists on your hard
disk that has the same name you choose.

I suspect you are taking about attachments. I'm taking about Save As...
under File in the message composition Window.

While I have your attention are you aiming for Ctrl+W to only close a
modified message after asking first? For a parallel I accidentially hit
Ctrl+W in the Evolution email client recently and it asked me first
whether I wanted to save my message. I just hit cancel and resumed instead
of losing everything I had written.
