Gnucash does try to save on exit if you exit cleanly.   At least it
asks you if you want to save or not.  IMHO this is "good enough".
Once you exit gnome, or kill X, or shutdown your computer, or unplug
the power, it's out of our control.  At some point you can't handle
all the stupid things that users do.  I think we do a pretty good job
of protecting stupid users from themselves, but frankly it can only
go so far.
