Hi Eric,

I have tried the regular means to recover the latest data, but eventually
had to recover from the latest git commit.

This incident sounds similar:

I have some wild theories, including a gamma particle hitting my laptop ;)
But: I do not know what emacs does under the hood in the org mode.
For instance, the text below my cursor at the time of accident was about
1MB. As you type in org mode, the text below the cursor would have to be
"shifted down". Maybe there is something in that operation, combined with
the fact that the amount of text was relatively large... like I said, just
some wild theories.

Anyways, I hope that nobody else experiences this, and if they do, then we
would be able to collect bug reports and figure out a fix.

Best regards,
