Gentoo now has a large number of USE flags. It would be a good usability addition if ufed would ask "are you sure" when a person tries to quit after making significant changes.
Steps to Reproduce:

3. click Exit
Ufed quit and reverted my changes.
Ufed should have offered to save my changes, giving me the option to save, quit
without saving, or cancel the quit.

You should post that as a separate bug. Bug 89446 is minor and unrelated to your problem. According
to Harald's comment above, I'm closing this bug.
Harald, ufed is a useful tool, if you ever do replace dialog, plz reconsider this feature req.
