Bug report #963
The project Save? dialog does not appear when expected.

A project with layers loaded sometimes doesn't get the Save dialog on closing QGIS/new file/open file actions
The Ask to save project changes... option is enabled.
One sequence of steps that does cause the Save? dialog to appear:
1. with any project (file or new) click one of the Zoom buttons (don't need to actually do any zooming - it is the button click action setting a "dirty" flag.)
2. close QGIS
Most other actions on the project, like adding a layer, don't cause the Save? dialog to appear.
This occurs in HEAD and back to 0.9.0, and on Windows and Linux.
When I noticed this I decided to write down exactly what I was expecting so I could test each scenario more intelligently than just randomly clicking buttons and such.
I poked around in the Developers area of the wiki and couldn't find anything outlining expected behavior on this topic. Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place. The user manual doesn't really address this, just a mention of the Ask to save project changes option.
So, I have attached my list of expectations for the Save? dialog to appear (or not) Comments?

Tested now on f81780d2 (SVN r12280): adding a layer now seems to work. If you try close qgis it ask you if you want to save the changes.
Removing a layer still doesn't work as expected: you can remove a layer from a just saved project and then close qgis. No question will pop up asking to save the project.
