Crashing Emacs, Auto Save Data and org-mode Links

When emacs crashes, it leaves behind auto save files. This is all fine
and dandy. 

However, after you've started emacs after a crash and you hit an
org-mode link, org-mode opens all kinds of files from everywhere, really
fast, because it's looking for the ID of the org-mode link.

The scanning actually opens the files and you are not really notified about
what files has been opened and what files needs a M-x
recover-this-file. 

You get a list in the *Messages* buffer and this list can be really long
if you've not saved your work.

What is the proper procedure after a crash?

Is there some way to scan directories for auto save files and somehow
clean up?; ie, to get a diff between the actual file and the auto save
file.
