Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger): Finder quits without saving unsaved smart folders

Try the following experiment.

In the Finder, open a smart folder that you have created. Click on “Edit” and make some changes to the search criteria. Do not save the changes.

Now launch Activity Viewer and, in the list of processes, select “Finder” and click on the “Quit” button. In the dialog sheet that pops out, select the normal quitting procedure, not the force-quit procedure.

Normally, when you quit the Finder normally, it should behave like any other application and ask if you want to save unsaved changes in your currently open documents. In this case, it should ask you if you want to change the criteria for the smart folder that you are currently editing.

But when you quit the Finder, the dialog sheet in question does pop out, but then the Finder quits anyway, without waiting for your confirmation.
