Yesterday, I was working on a long SQL statement. I accidentally hit ESC on my keyboard, effectively erasing the statement.

As a way to prevent this mild "data lost", it would be nice for the DB Manager's SQL window to remember the query textbox string upon closing and re-display it upon re-opening (within the same application session).

Paolo, it's a duplicate as long as feature #4781 includes keeping history of SQL query string that are not executed yet.

I.e., in the above case scenario, the user - clumsy me - lost the SQL query he was building up by accidentally hitting ESC. If feature #4781 only covers keeping history of executed SQL queries, scenario wouldn't be handled.

Glad the issue is being looked at. Thanks.
