Since I don't anything about C programming yet I can't do anything about this,
but I have a suggestion: I have done a html editor (with Tcl/Tk) and if I
remember it right, my file_save proc works like this: When somebody presses the
save button, the proc checks if the filename is "Untitled" (in pw:s case this
would be "noname.pw") and if it is, it bring up the save as dialog. If not, it
just saves what's in the text widget to the right filename.

I think it's essential to fix these bugs, this is pretty basic
