Boy I sure do! But it is an issue with doing something stupid like trying to make changes to code and compile it while I am still debugging using PowerDebug. Don't know if it would happen with the normal debugger so I cannot say it is power debug, and anyway the proper response to compiling code during debugging should be, "Don't do that!" :-)
Also, having tabs open in GLX2 for a stack that has been removed from memory is another great way to lock up the IDE. Again, not sure if the stock editor would behave the same way. I just throw that out there as vectors on IDE lockups that some may not have considered yet. Also, I think Mark Wieder may have addressed this one in the latest release of GLX2.

I save manually immediately after every change I want to keep. That's often enough that I rarely lose anything -- but I don't seem to have much trouble with the IDE locking up. I almost never experience it.
