I have had this happen to me a few times, but fortunately I am the
type to obsessively type Ctrl+S every time I complete a new cell once
I've got it right.   ;-)  If there isn't any kind of auto-save feature
available (I haven't seen one yet) perhaps you could set up one?  The
only problem I can see is that Dynamic won't operate on anything not
visible, so perhaps a separate window or something...  I haven't
looked too deeply for ways to get around that limitation.  But one
observation, it seems like every time I have crashed Mathematica, when
I go back in my mind to figure out what I did wrong it's usually
something dumb like forgetting a semi-colon, so that, for example, I
was trying to multiply two functions which don't make sense to try to
multiply (like Import[] and SetDirectory[] perhaps).
