If I'm not mistaken, this issue has come up before. Oddly, you can 
activate quit using Q only when editing a mesh. Unfortunately, q is 
right next to the w-key, which is used to access a number of different 
functions - several of which require hitting enter or clicking OK to 
confirm. This is not good, since the same thing can happen. In my 
opinion, quitting should not be so easy, as there is too much at risk. 
Inadvertently quitting while editing a mesh means you've lost any 
changes you've made. One thing I've mentioned before is to perhaps give 
blender the same functionality as most other apps - if a file been 
modified since the last save, ask the user if he/she wants to save the 
changes before quitting. I'm not sure what ever happened with this.
