I would also add as a variant of a) (which is probalby more realistic) is
that

When you kill widget 1 it asks you if you want to save your data : Y1/N1
When you kill widget 2 it asks you if you want to save your data : Y2/N2

Then you will have Y1/Y2 --> data of 2 ; Y1/N2 --> data of 1; N1/Y2 --> data
of 2 ; N1/N2 --> previous data (or default if it was the first invocation
ever)

Then the UI may propose to the user to always save the preference and then
you will get c) behaviour

My two cents
