I hate to say it, but that's your own fault. If you mess around with stuff
before saving whatever you're working on, and you lose the work in
progress, then well, you should have saved... You may remember that just
about _every_ Windows-based install program tells you to save your data
and close all running applications before proceeding with Setup.
