Well, to avoid that, you should "save" your changes after some
administration on Jigsaw. Even if indexing of new resource is not done
yet, it won't be critical (you may have warnings but nothing more serious
than that). If the current configuration is saved (without killing the
server), even if you have to reboot the machine the configuration can be
recovered afterward.
Saving everytime the configuration would have taken too much time. User
driven configuration save was a reasonable choice... If you don't forget
to save :)
