What I know from other platforms (Solaris/Linux) is that autosave
saves into a hidden file in the background not destroying your last
saved document. Just in case of an unforeseen shutdown of the system,
a power outage or a crash of the whole soffice suite, X11 system or OS
these hidden files remain in background. Restarting soffice next time
finds all the leftover hidden files from last time and offers to
recover them.


You and I are talking about two different things that have unfortunately
been given the same name.

You're thinking of the familiar feature which automatically backs up
what you're working on to another backup file.

I agree with you. LO must keep that feature!

I'm talking of OS X Lion's new trick which is *almost* the same thing,
but instead of saving to another off-stage file, it saves to the actual
document file you're working on -- before you've decided whether you
want to keep the changes. Maybe you don't realize you've even made
changes. Old data gets backed up to the off-stage file...unless the
document is stored in the wrong place, in which case the old, good data
just gets thrown away.
