I share Sebastien's point of view as I get myself in this situation quite
When quitting Emacs and answering "yes" to the question "Modified buffers
exists; exit anyway?", you *decide* to drop your unsaved modifications, don't
Later on, maybe several months later, when you open this file, it tells you
that "you should consider recovering it" and, in such a case, you do it because
you are worried to lose important changes. But, doing so, you end up with the
changes you didn't want to save in the first place!
In this case, you'll need to lose time making a diff and consider *again* to
drop the changes.
When you use the kill-buffer command on a modified buffer and answering yes to
the question, you decide to drop your changes and the autosave file is dropped
Why this behavior should be different when quitting Emacs?
Thanks for you help.
