I guess I wasn't clear -- I haven't lost any edits, this is a usability
question.  Should a user without access to the underlying file system
lose edits, the only way I can find that allows the user to recover the
lost edits by himself is to go to FindPage and type
"UserName/MoinEditorBackup" in the Go To Page search box.  

Is there a design issue here -- why can't a user type type his name in
the title search box and see his home page with MoinEditorBackup listed
as a subpage?  Or am I missing a more obvious way to access the saved
