Yes mothra still has this behavior. I am not opposed to adding
a confirmation step. When the first patch was discussed I took a survey
and the leading idea seemed to just be to have it exit. I think some of
this comes down to how you use subrios. For how I use them, a premature
exit would not ruin my morning. But I can very much imagine someone having
a workflow where that would be quite the damper on their morning.

It seems to me that people that get quite a bit of mileage out of subrios
would prefer to have a confirmation exit step. For those that don't, one
more mouse click is not a painful compromise.
