Well, OK, I don't generally do that!

Sometimes I do have hairy debugging sessions where I end up with 10 or
20 wierd conditional breakpoints, and other bits of gdb-internal state,
that are quite annoying to reproduce if my gdb session goes away when
emacs crashes.  Of course I could try to save all this in a file, in
case of a crash, but it's typically all very fragmented and dependent on
the particular state of the running programm, and I generally am too
focused on the problem at hand to think much about emacs crashing.

[though indeed I have had emacs crash in such a circustance...]
