It might be a lot easier for users if the saved file was in the same directory as the original, maybe
filexyz.sgf.bak  or maybe better (more descriptive) filexyz.sfg,autosave

And when you Save that file, when done writing it, delete the autosave file if any

IMHO - there may be issued I totally missed... just my 2c

I haven¹t followed up with Christian about how things are suppose to work,
but from my testing the Autosave data gets stored in your home directory
under /.gnubg/backup (similar place to where you find the gnuvgautorc file).
There you will find SGF files for matches that are autosaved. They may have
unusual temporary names but you should be able to find the data you are
looking for. The question for Anthon is ­ how is autosave suppose to work
from the user perspective. Is looking in the backups directory the intent.

Just to check...
If I set the autosave to 1 minute and start a rollout that takes longer than
that, each minute the rollout data gets saved to the file
so if gnubg crashes, when I reopen the file the data should be saved at the
last autosave and I can continue?

I tried doing rollouts both individually and via CMark for about 5 minutes
(setting autosave to 1 minute) , crashed gnubg and reopened
but the data wasn't saved.

Unless I'm doing something wrong or misunderstand the autosave feature.
