A bit more usability testing.

1: open session, a3 hang, force close session = no config saved. empty 
.a3 file
2: open session, do something, close, hang = as above
3: open session do something force close (ctrl+c) = .a3 file saved correctly
4: open session, attempt to load existing session = hang
5: open session, attempt to create new session with same name as old 
session, dialog asking to load exisiting session = hang
