This isn't a bug, it's how IDEA works. IDEA allows itself to save your changes at any time, for any reason. This means you never need to hit save. Since many of IDEAs refactoring tools may modify files that you haven't even opened, this makes sense, and saves a lot of time over other possibilities.

"But what if I make some changes that I didn't want! How do I roll them back?". Instead of not saving the changes, in IDEA you to roll back your changes explicitly, using it's "Local History" functionality. "Local History" acts as a purely local version control system, embedded in your IDE. You can see all of the changes you've made on any file, get diffs between various versions, tag versions, and roll back or roll forward any changes you've made. It rules mightily.

This all takes a bit of getting used to, particularly the not having to ever hit "Save" part, but once you do you'll love it.
