That¹s not a bad idea, however that can¹t be used in all cases. One such
case is If you have started a match (or set up a position) without saving it
previously (thus no name). I also have a feeling this is just the first cut
at getting autosave implemented. Christian put a comment in the Changelog
that the feature needs testing, so I think any comments on improving it are
more than welcome at this point - thanks!
