If xournal (or worse still your XServer) crashes, this patch emergency saves any unsaved files. The files are saved under a unique name in your home directory (esave-DATE-TIME-XXXXXX.xoj) so that you don't accidentally overwrite anything. You can view or delete these files later at your convenience.
NOTE: This only emergency saves on X errors. I sometimes get them after waking my computer up, and Xournal seems to have lost contact with the tablet. I've tested this by forcibly killing/crashing the X server. However if you "pkill xournal", or if xournal segfaults your journals will not be safe.
