It asks you to save if you close the window or do a new search. I am unsure how you managed to lose changes.

That said, I don’t like the behavior myself, but I don’t see any other easy fix for this, other than introduce UI in the Find dialog that effectively shows a list of files affected (which is somewhat down on the list).
