Thanks.  Please provide a log entry for this.

Is there a way to get back the current behavior, i.e. not save any
buffers?

In any case, this is a change in user-visible behavior, so I think it
warrants a NEWS entry

Also, this defcustom lacks a :version keyword.

Did you consider letting grep-ask-about-save serve double duty, in
that it could also be a predicate function?  I'm not saying this would
necessarily be better, I'm just asking why not.
