Hmm.  It's not "always" annoying; this has never annoyed me.  I try to
avoid accumulating "state" in my Emacs session in the first place.

I guess I can understand if you are in the middle of a debugging
session, and emacs crashes, then you could lose a few minutes' work.
But I can't really imagine having anything that I want to stick around
for longer than that (the OP said "a week"!).  Do you run programs
inside gdb for a week at a time?  And, if you do have useful output in a
buffer, there are various ways to save it.  (It would be easy enough to
turn on auto-save in various temporary buffers.  I thought that the
reason it's off is because everyone regards this output as ephemeral.)
