Problem conclusion

  • To solve the problem, ie to avoid getting dangling links,
    when the user says no to the save prompt, meaning that they
    want to discard the changes and hence the "never-saved"
    objects too including the incoming links to them, we delete
    all incoming links to all "never-saved" objects. This way
    the link will also be deleted from the source end (in case
    the source module was open) and we'd never have dangling
    links.
