And this isn't going to help immediately, but once I've been working
on a file called "my_cool_image_01.xcf" for over an hour, I do a
File->Save As (CTRL-Shift-S), and name it 'my_cool_image_02.xcf".
This isn't just a GIMP thing - I do the same in all programs.  Disk
space is cheap; my time is not ;)

Going forward, if you use this strategy you'll likely only lose an
hour at most if things go sideways.  But to be fully honest I pair
that strategy with regular off-site backups :)
