When Octave GUI exits, it isn't asking whether it should save a file that has been modified in the file editor tab.

Probably the best place to handle this is to put a closeEvent or something more direct at the start of the file editor tab's destructor file_editor_tab::~file_editor_tab. Eventually the
main app should get around to calling every file_editor_tab's destructor. By issuing a close, the message box about save or not-save should come up for ever modified file.
