[racket-dev] autosave of unsaved files, docs

The docs at


are all about the autosave of files that have already been associated
with disk.  What about those that haven't?  There is no reference to
the Documents/mredauto.* files, which thankfully just saved me a bunch
of time.

Incidentally, searching for "crash" in Help Desk offers literally
nothing.  For someone who's just suffered the trauma of a crash,
perhaps a soothing entry would help, such as a pointer to the above
docs on autosave files.  (And there may be some other aliases to
"crash" that are also worth indexing.)

[Fwiw, "mredauto" doesn't show up in Help Desk, either.]
