Recovering a crashed session is much more important than visiting a
tutorial or opening a file.  I would understand and support a
suggestion to _add_ a clickable link, but why would you want to remove
the information about invoking recovery by hand?  A user whose session
crashed may be under pressure, and not immediately recognize the
significance of the blue underlined portion of the text.
