Even worse, if you exit, and it tells you that if you don't save, you'll still have a draft, you won't actually have a draft. PowerPoint seems to delete its temporary files when you exit the program. When I tried to kill PP, it still deleted the file. So that bit of cleanup code is pretty resilient, at least to my half-hearted effort to blow away PP.
