I have my auto-save-timeout customized to 15 since about forever, but
I don't know what others will say about that.  We should ask users
before changing this.

In any case, disabling auto-save at crash time is out of the question,
IMO.  Precious stuff could come into a buffer from some fast source,
such as a program or a network connection, and in that case even
several seconds worth of data could be a lot.  Removing auto-save from
the emergency shut down would be a terrible mistake.
