Description of problem:
Hi,  I installed gnucash and imported my qif files.  Then I looked at my account
some, then I went to close it.  Upon closing, gnucash said, 
"Changes have been made since the last Save.  Save the data to file?  Yes No". 
I said Yes, and then I created a file in my home directory, then I typed in the
name of the file and saved it.  But then it kept popping up that Save message
again and again and again, and I kept saying yes and yes, until I finally said
no, and it went away.  The data was in fact saved, and when I reopened the file
and made changes, the error did not occur.  

However, it did also occur when I did the same thing under a new user.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  For the first time as a particular user, open gnucash
2.  Import a qif file
3.  Exit
4.  When it prompts to save, click yes, create a new directory, and enter a file
in that directory
5.  Click ok or whatever it says
6.  Then it keeps asking you if you want to save until you say no.

Closing bugs from older, end-of-life releases. Apologies for any lack of response.

Please attempt to reproduce problems on a current distro, such as Fedora Core 3.
