You bring up a good point.  I have sent out a version that puts up a dialog
when the flush is successful and then the size of the file.   I am then
having the teach minimize the grade book, open their grade folder on the
server, find the file and doing a get info to make sure the file looks
correct in the finder.   This way they still have the file in memory if
something is amiss.

The environment for this defect is at one school and the 10.3.3 computers
are having trouble with servers.  (Slower than X usually is.)   The server
is the last 6.n Apple server running 9.01.  However, even if the save is
slow, I would think the OS would report if something was not transferred.

Thanks for your helpful comments.

Best Wishes,
