"Save Document?" dialog

On Mac OS X:

1. Open LibreOffice Writer
2. Enter some text
3. Press Cmd+Q to quit
4. "Save Document?" dialog appears (screenshot attached)
5. Press Cmd+Q again (or go to LibreOffice > Quit in the menu)
6. LibreOffice closes instantly
7. On next start, the Document Recovery dialog appears, although it doesn't recover the text entered before

What should happen:

In Apple's own apps, it is not possible to use Cmd+Q in "save changes?" dialog boxes, nor close the app via the menu. You have to choose one of the buttons.

This is an unlikely data-loss scenario, but it would be good for consistency if app quitting was disabled when the "Save Document?" dialog pops up.

Uh-uh, that should not happen to modal dialogs. This one should be presented as a sheet (bug 81908) anyway, which could be a way to solve this issue.

Confirming that this is still an issue in LibreOffice 5.3.3 on macOS.

Could this be related to bug 31915?

Reproduced in, as well as in Build ID: cc9a8c13dad6f3d82a2386554bd6113b486a1752

This is in fact inherited from LO 3.3

Pretty confident this is an issue of not having native modal dialogs
