I think I have found out a scenario to reproduce this problem:
- Make a change in the main (formatted) view
- Open the source view and make a change in this view
- Click on the SaveAll icon (double disk icon), the changes made in the 
source view have disappeared.
It is a combination of making changes in both view and using the SaveAll 
command that causes this problem.
It is now fixed in the cvs version. The fix will be available in the 
next version.

Thanks for reporting it.

Laurent
