Nope.  Just like there is no way for gnucash to stop you from
unplugging your computer or turning it off.  Exiting gnome is
outside the purvue of gnucash.  By the time gnucash gets told
that gnome is going away, you have no more UI.

"Save Early, Save Often".

Hitting the "save" button is easy.  Just Do It.
