In ZWEI in System 79.28, ZMail 40.7, Remote-File 2.0, LMFILE-Remote 5.3,
microcode 849, on Lisp Machine Eight:

With regard to the use of the Kill-or-Save-Buffers menu with buffers
which have been named but never filed out and are lacking a filename.

If you mouse select them to be saved while having a different buffer
selected on the screen, which does have an associated filename; then
the editor prompts you at the bottom of the screen for a filename under
which to store the other previously unstored buffer without giving any
indication of which buffer it is asking about. The real screw is that
the default it supplies is for the currently selected and displayed
buffer, not the one it is trying to save. (Control-X Control-S in such
a previously unsaved buffer would give you a reasonable default.)
