It's possible that another auto-save plug-in for TinyMCE exists, but I haven't seen such a thing, so I built and now released my own.
This plug-in is not something quickly slapped together. A lot of research and design went into it, and it uses the most advanced client storage abilities of the user's Web browser that it can find -- it will even use the HTML 5 localStorage or sessionStorage,
if it can find it. (For example, in IE8, the plug-in uses localStorage.)
This enables storage and rescue of large amounts of content that is not fragile and passed through HTTP like cookies are.
The plug in called TinyAutoSave, and is hosted at Google Code:
There is lots of information and documentation in the wiki, and the source code is fully documented as well. It is released under GPL v3.
If you give it a try, please send feedback! I put together all the documentation and source control to make sure this is done right, because I want to continue improving the plug-in over time, based on real-world needs.

Look excellant! However can you also put it onto www.CodePlex.Com and /or Source Forge?

I'm not sure what the benefit of hosting open-source code on multiple versioning systems would be. I can only see that it could actually create a situation where things get out of sync and cause confusion.
I'm a Subversion user, so I went with Google Code. However, to access the code, Google provides web-based browse capability, so you can see everything -- even all the versioning information -- very easily without any Subversion knowledge or tools. Just
click the Source link and then Browse.
