That is a problem.  Anything that changes the document must unconditionally raise the flag.

I would propose that if a user cared enough about their document, they would be saving their changes prior to closing the document or application.  (I save like punctuation as I type.)  Although a low priority (I'm not expecting anybody to drop everything and fix it now), the dialog does communicate FALSE information:  stating a document is not saved, when in fact it is.  At work, we often say "no information is better than wrong information"...
