The problem is not that is just didn't save... So dang.

Pd has been crashing more often for me lately, with no more terminal
output than "Segmentation fault"...  Is there a log somewhere where I
can try to see what's causing these?

On Linux.

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.
