Wow! That (and pred.. ) section has been there since the genesis of files.el in 1991 by Roland McGrath: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/emacs.git/commit/?id=b4da00e92a09a2ee2cfb5df2ec111636c66e1597

(Thanks to vc-region-history.)

It was named exiting.. and at some point got renamed to pred. So it looks like, by design buffer-offer-save was checked only at the time of exiting emacs i.e. during the call to save-some-buffers within save-buffer-kill-emacs.

Yes, given that it had always been there.

The pred will be true automatically at the time of quitting emacs (aptly because earlier that var was called 'exiting').. but not when you call C-x s.

So looks like along with setting buffer-offer-save to t, you would also need to set save-some-buffers-default-predicate to t locally for the special buffers you need saving.

How about this as a solution? With this, you only need to set buffer-over-save.
