Personally, after a couple of hours or so of work (in any graphics
program), I usually do a File->Save As and append a number to the
filename. So if I start a project, I'll save it as something like
"my_project_01.xcf", then after a while save as "my_project_02.xcf" -
that way even if I close or crash GIMP I have a series of 'snapshots'
of the project I can go back to if needed. This has saved me from
disaster more than once - I've seen everything from lightning strikes
to pets eating power cords, not to mention pilot error ;)
OTOH, I hardly ever crash GIMP - you definitely should try and track
down the cause of those crashes also.
