This is a bug.  I have a fix but it needs more testing before we 
try to base a patch on it.  At worst, it'll be fixed in 2.1.1.

Sorry, this isn't very clear and the error reporting is 
non-existent but you want to call this on the application object 


Although there's a 'save-buffer' command on the editor it looks 
like the current API isn't set up to call that properly (for 
somewhat obscure reasons).

You could connect to the 'save-point' signal on the document 
object.  See scripts/editor_extentions.py for an example of 
connecting to 'presave'; the code you need would be similar. It's 
a bit weak because 'undo' after changes gets you back to a save 
point also but it should work well enough for this case.

We'll try to fix the various nits this has uncovered in the API.
