OK, that gives me an idea--add another option to wait until Gnucash is
idle n minutes before auto-saving. That way, Gnucash will auto-save
while you're making coffee, for example.
For me, saving takes about four seconds. It's not enough to cause
hardship, but it would be a pain while I was actively entering
transactions. So, I might imagine a configuration like "(every 5
minutes or 10 transactions) and 1 minute idle".
That said, I would take auto-save over original file over no auto-save
at all. But it sounds like it would still be a good idea to keep an
alternate implementation in the queue.
Huge kudos, as always, to the Gnucash team for keeping us Windows
For you Yanks, happy Fourth!
