I am so pissed off.

Why does autosave only save things I didn't want to save?

And forget about the lengthy post that I got interrupted part-way through?

I have often wondered this exact same thing.

i keep a couple of windows open and try to remember to close the autosave window and make it go away because it'll save one entry and lose others i was trying to work on at the same time.
copy the whole text in the main window before hitting the update journal button. so if you lose it when you post, refresh/back buton the page, paste the copy and post again.
sounds strange, but thats how it seems to work.
its also good to copy all the text if you have a really really long post (there's a length limit and if its too big, you lose it when you go back or refresh). if its too long copying will alllow you to break the entry up into two parts.
