When using the option --tempfile, or when having bound the action 'savefile' to some key combo and typing that key combo, then nano will write out the current buffer (if it has a name) without any checks, also without the check whether the file has been modified on disk after nano read it.  Nano should always perform that check, also when --tempfile or 'savefile' is used.
