Yes, this has been a serious problem with Subsurface since the start, since
dive sites aren't treated as first class citizens. Dive sites just
disappear if you happen to not have it linked to a dive :(

There is work underway to revamp the whole dive site database logic,
though, so there's hope that even I can use Subsurface as my main dive
logging software some time in the future.  Really looking forward to it! :)
