I could not find the right message to reply to, so I respond to this one 

I created a file in Scribus 1.5.0, added a text block. saved the file and 
then exited the program. No warning message.

I reloaded the file, changed the text, did not save, and exited the 
program. Got the warning message. 

Obviously I did not test all possible circumstances, but in the above 
simple case Scribus 1.5.0 works correctly.  My Scribus 1.5.0 still claims 
to be dated 07 June 2011 and build C-C-T-F-PC1.9.99. 
It was recompiled on June 15 at about 5.30 EDT.
