I've been thinking about this. We should probably be keeping multiple autosaves and rotating between them. For example, we should create Autosave.cmpgn, renaming the existing file to Autosave-1.cmpgn, and doing that for 2-3 saves by default. Having a single autosave seems to mess people up sometimes when they accidentally do something and then an autosave triggers too soon for them to recover the existing autosave file.
I'll look into this; it shouldn't be too tough as it's just renaming existing files if they're already there. We can implement a spinner in the Preferences to control how many there are and default it to three...
That would be very nice -- or even just not allowing the autosave to be deleted until a new one is made. But the problem is a bit bigger than this: As far as I understand, maptool will only do one autosave per save. That is, the regular interval autosave function doesn't work (and hasn't worked for a while).
