Even in my old D1 3D editor I implemented auto-saving because it was 
hard to recover from internal errors and I decided to log-and-crash. And 
it still works perfectly, user can loose at most a minute of work!

I'd like every program to do the same thing. More that that, my 
favourite game (Windows XP SP3) sometimes fails to start (you know, 
"system32\config\<reg file> is corrupted" error) and I have to launch my 
restore script and almost every time the last restore point is broken 
(and its creation time is often a few hours before last shut down)!

So trying to save after and program logic error is definitely a mistake.
