Undo seems kind of buggy in 6. I've lost things that just didn't go back 
to the way they were when I tried to Undo (after e.g. accidentally 
pasting when I meant to copy).

I'm fairly obsessive about saving frequently, but I cannot for the life 
of me get my students to do it. A few times a semester, someone will 
crash Mathematica at the very end of a class period when they are taking 
a quiz or exam, without having saved a thing. Built-in AutoSave would be 
nice to have.
