Sorry for the slow response - as I mentioned earlier, I am rather busy
with my family this weekend...

How about this for wording


You are trying to quit while in the middle of editing a dive.
To keep your changes, hit Cancel here and finish editing the dive.

[Quit and discard any changes]  [Cancel]

I still worry about this being somewhat confusing... in order to keep
the changes the user needs to click cancel, then save, then quit again
and save.

But I agree that for the case where the user just wants to get out of
Subsurface (likely because they made a change they didn't like) this is
much more convenient.

Here's what you wrote in your other email, responding to Tomaz (sadly,
also a top-post reply...):

Thank you for your patience and persistence. I realize this is
frustrating, but sometimes that's part of the process.

I look forward to a clean patch with correct commit message that
implements what we now came up with. And you are correct. That will make
Subsurface better.
