My heart feels for you, I know exactly your frustration.
Unless its a very short post I use Word or Notepad now and copy/paste the post in when I'm ready to send it off.
Before the last upgrade you could recover your post by hitting the back button but that feature isn't available any more, at least not until some code gets rewritten or so I understand :(
EDIT: Thanks Will! I now have Lazarus installed! *hugs*
