Ha. This is a trap any (unaware) user could easily fall into (and even 
an aware user).

I am unable to check this now but in any event I would strongly suggest 
the tooltip be made clear and even more than that, a clear warning on 
the website, in the download or installation notes for the unstable branch.

This kind of settings (like auto-save) usually get forgotten by users. 
In this case it can create more problems than one can think on the first 

Of course, there is always something called a back-up that is always a 
good idea to have at hand. :)
