Implemented in r16256. Anyone with suggestions for improved wording? The 
current wording is:

Title: "Save file automatically?"

Text: ("Your data file needs to be saved to your harddisk to save your 
changes.  GnuCash has a feature to save the file automatically every %d 
minutes, just as if you had pressed the \"Save\" button each time. \n\n" 
  "You can change the time interval or turn off this feature under Edit -> 
Preferences -> General -> Auto-save time interval. \n\n" 
  "Should your file be saved automatically?"), 

("_Yes, this time") ("Yes, _always") ("No, n_ever") ("_No, not this time")

The last button is the default one.

Also, I added a checkbox in the preferences for showing this confirmation 
dialog again.

Thanks for all the feedback.
