Genera warm boot after Mac(Ivory) restart

In reply to the message of Larry Baum:

We have this kind of problems here, too. *IF* you are able to return to the Genera
environment before restarting your Mac, i.e. if there was no Mac system or application
crash, then there is a way to make a Genera warm boot more likely to succeed. Use
"logout" and "Halt Machine" to leave the Ivory in a defined state, then Quit from
Genera and restart your Mac.

I admit, this is not a Mac-like procedure and it doesn't help on a Mac system crash,
but it does help in some cases. Personally, I would like to see Symbolics provide a
solution to this problem *very* soon.
