Glad to hear it works as expected.

An automatic save is a handy feature in production programs. And 
yes,  I probably can do it, but it needs more investigation from my 
- how to start some timer for saving backups
- localize the current directory

Please don't hold your breath, I can do it after work, in my spare 
time with my limited knowledge.
Thanks for your hint about --single-user, I will test it.
