You might want to upload the xcf somewhere if you want people to help
with trying to get it back.
Howver, being able to keep a few layers (as opposed to completely losing
the whole file) does sound very odd (your harddrive isn't making strange
ticking noises, is it?).
In any case, if you're getting a lot of crashes, do ensure you're
running the newest version (click Help→About, should say 2.6.11). You
might also want to invest in some more RAM (I've got 3GB, haven't had a
GIMP crash in over a year).
