In my experience Pd crashes quite often when I save. In some cases, it 
crashes _before_ it saves the file, so any change I've made since the 
last save is lost; in some other cases, it crashes just _after_ saving, 
so the changes are saved.

It never happened to me that after such a crash I got a corrupted patch 
or that I loose any object that were present the previous time I had 
saved the patch. I don't know whether it is your case. Maybe the objects 
that are gone are those that you had added after the last-but-one save 
and before the save that triggered the crash.

If that is the case, I'm afraid there's no fix :(
