Because there is a filename in the window caption.

This confusion in the raison d'être of my "new workflow" proposal: in
every other application, when you see a filename in the window
caption, it means your current document is stored in the filename you
see in the caption; when you have not created a new document, the
window caption says "untitled" (or "untitled [modified]" if it's
unsaved but modified). IMHO in KSnapshot 4.5.3 and older (and in
current trunk) it's not clear at all when something is saved and when
it is not because the caption always shows a filename.
