Posting to iaep only since cross-posting doesn't work for me anymore 
(non-subscribed email addresses get rejected) and it's more than just a 
technical issue (so sugar-devel isn't enough).

+1 on that, even though I don't have direct experience with learners 
(other than myself) either.

I'd like to toss another idea into the room: Show the naming dialog 
directly after _startup_ of a new instance. Ask the user what (s)he's 
intending to do when the decision is fresh and the user is focussed on 
the current activity, instead of getting in the way on closing, when the 
user is likely to already be focussing on the _next_ activity (whether 
real-world or Sugar).

I do see the point about the naming dialog being an opportunity for 
reflection on what's just been done, but at least the current dialog 
isn't well-suited for that anyway, as it obscurs most part of the 
screen, so the user can only reflect on what's still in his/her mind, 
not on the finished work.
