That's particularily annoying when you've written quite a lot without
manually saving the file used... :-/

This is no emacs behaviour at all and should definitely be changed.
Emacs doesn't exit on ctrl-g and mcedit should behave the same.

The fix for existing without saving is in CVS for several months.  It's
one of the most important fixes in the upcoming version 4.6.1.

If you have an idea what Ctrl-g should do in the emacs mode please let me
know.  It's not realistic to make it work exactly as in emacs (i.e.
cancel key sequences) without major changes in the key processing code. If
you want, Ctrl-g will not be recognized at all in the emacs mode.
