Testing 20090428a, the prompt appears when I press "Cancel" after I
made changes. This might be intentionally although I consider pressing
"Cancel" not an unintentional action Iwant to be warned about.

"Preview" and then "Cancel" also shows the dialog, even if no changes
were made. Maybe it's not possible to distingish "real" changes from a
preview command?

Confirmed. With $EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1;, PmWiki throws a
message thereafter as expected.

Tested with Firefox 3, IE6, IE7, Win XP.
