Auto-save doesn't guarantee that everything you wrote is saved...
And you process state gets lost.

Also, one thing which has bitten me more than once is while
debugging something with gdb -- if emacs crashes on you,
your gdb session is lost -- any you may have worked for a long
time to get into an interesting state in your program...
