I think something like this has happened to all of as at some point.
It's a bitter pill to swallow, but there's a take-away lesson: every
so often do File->Save As and save a copy.  I tend to name my files
like 'project_name-01', and after an hour or two (or any client
revisions) save as 'project_name-02', then '-03', '-04', etc.

There's a GIMP plug-in that adds an iterative save option (I've never
used it though):

For what it's worth I learned my lesson from Photoshop, not GIMP.  It
trashed a file I had been working on for over 6 hours and I was only
able to retrieve bits and pieces - nothing close to the full document.
 I had to start over.  Over the past 10 years I've seen trashed files
at least once from most of the Adobe suite, so I don't think you give
up on GIMP just yet.  A crash during the save process can be a very
dangerous thing, no matter which program you're using.
