sav^H^H^Hexported and therefore it's safe to quit GIMP. With 
the 2.8 model I actually have more risk of work loss, not less. 

I save my edited photos in xcf (or xcf.bz2) and I have a script that 
converts them automatically to all formats I often use (jpegs in some 
sizes (converting to sRGB on the fly), tiff in the original size). It 
just scans all xcf files and checks if all converted files exist and are 
newer than the xcf file. To me, it's the most user-friedly approach. 

Anna, Maarten! Hi!

Accidental loss of unsaved work more than a few times (by different reason,
forced me to use this python plugin 

You might want to check it out. It saves as xcf (bz2, gz) all open, all
changed images
and you can set back-up time interval.
Works like a charm. Could be an integral part of standard GIMP package
(wishful thinking :)
