can you identify what actions make the document 'dirty' in order for scribus to prompt you to save it? Can you reproduce on 1.5.x ?

Yes, it happens on 1.5.3

All I have to do is type a single character into the file.

Is that not expected behavior ?

I edit the file.
Then I the ctrl-S to save the file.
If I then close the application I am prompted that the file should be saved!

I generally use the Windows supplied Close gadget to close the application. But the "File | Close" menu item throws the same prompt at me.

If the file has been saved it does not need saving and I should be able to close the application without the application telling me to do a seemingly random thing.

@richardpaulhall please state the exact step-by-step process you use because I can't seem to recreate the bug.
