I think that (ZED) ought to sanitize the buffer by going through and fixing any
conditions that would make it impossible to edit the buffer. There will always
be such bugs as this one from time to time, and it would be good if they
didn't screw the user out of writing his file out. Note that this bug has
nothing to do with what I was working on in this session, so I had no reason to
be cautious about such problems. It could happen to anyone at any time.
paging in every buffer when the editor is entered during normal operation seems
highly misguided. any groveling should be limited to (SAVE-ALL-FILES). writing
out one's files is the only important consideration when the editor crashes hard for
the average user, not being able to continue normal editing.
