I menationed experiencing weird behaviour with this in another topic. I've since had more opportunity to play around and figure out what happened. There are rare circumstances where that dialogue comes up, but the doc has focus instead of the dialogue, and so you have to cycle the open NeoOffice windows (or mouse-click on the dialogue) before you can Save/Discard/Cancel. I'm not sure what those circumstances were yesterday - maybe I clicked twice on the Close button without realising, or something else is the culprit.
I've found there is a more confusing circumstance where you have 2 docs open, try to close one of them and get the dialogue, and then you cycle round the 2 docs and the dialogue such that you can have the other doc in front, but it doesn't have focus - so you try to type into it and it appears to be dead.

This is actually a bug in NeoOffice that I need to fix. Can you file a bug in Bugzilla about this? Meanwhile, I will work on it.
What is supposed to happen is that if you click on the document window, NeoOffice is supposed to force the focus back to the dialog. This worked for a long time but, at some point, it appears to have stopped working.
