Don't let app close without saving session

If Fiddler is saving a log and the user clicks on the close icon [X], the log is lost.  This happens with large logs that take time to process.  Also, a user can close fiddler without saving their session.  It would be nice if it prompted them to save the current session.  I have lost key logs because the user had a bad day performance wise and is rushing out the door.

    Uncomment the following block of code in the script:

     static function OnBeforeShutdown(): Boolean {
    // Return false to cancel shutdown.
    return ((0 == FiddlerApplication.UI.lvSessions.TotalItemCount()) ||
    (DialogResult.Yes == MessageBox.Show("Allow Fiddler to exit?", "Go Bye-bye?",
    MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Question, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button2)));
