Default Annoying save query

Every time the project setting opens after loading the project and I press the "OK" button, REAPER asks me if I want to save when closing the project although I haven't changed anything.

Steps to follow
1. start new project
2. open project settings
3. go to the "Notes" tab and check "show notes at project start".
4. save the project
5. reopen the project
6. the "Notes" tab opens again. Click "OK" to close the window.
7. close the project. Now REAPER asks if I want to save although I did not make any changes at all. This is annoying.

If you click on "Cancel" at point 6, REAPER does not ask if I want to save.

Yes, Reaper has several annoying issues like this. Another one is that it is not possible to undo all the way to the initial state; the "dirty" flag is not cleared, and Reaper asks you if you want to save, even though *all* actions have been undone.

I guess these are things that we just have to live with.
I never always did the right thing, but all I did wasn't wrong...

I once requested a ReaScript-function to clear that dirty-flag but hasn't made it into Reaper (yet)

That indeed would be very handy !

Right now for my headless live setup machine I set the backlog size to zero to allow it to shout down without query. This of course has the negative effect that there also is no query when I manually changed something. So having a timeout with the query would be extremely handy, as well.
