Script Editor Unusable on Windows

You may want to look at The LCStackBrowser Plugin. It has the ability to
save stacks automatically. I have used this for years now. There were some
problems recently when the LiveCode version went from 7 to 8 but the author
has fixed that.

Early on when LC was experiencing a CTD issue (this was around v6) I wrote
code into my stacks that saved every time I closed a stack. I also save code
incredibly frequently, sometimes every few line edits. I maintain local and
offsite backups of what I do so I can revert, and I have a versioning local
backup running automatically so I can recover a version earlier in the day,
in case I completely bork my code, then save it. 

Still, this is a pain and needs to be sussed out, but as you say, producing
a reliable recipe is nearly impossible, because by the time you notice it,
it's about to go nuclear.
