I would bug it.  The engine itself seems generally reliable in this regard,
so it may be something in the interactions with the IDE.  As an additional
data point, since 1997 I've only had one corrupted stack with MC, and in all
cases where a save was terminated (fatal error elsewhere in the system,
power outage, me doing something stupid) there was a "~" copy to work from.
