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

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.
