So emacs will have been editing drafts/42, say.

That shell's history might show any unexpected `send'.

rmmproc, if set, isn't used in the deleting of drafts.  When drafts/42
is finished with, any existing drafts/,42 is unlinked and then 42
renamed to ,42.  Do you see these old drafts in your drafts directory
from general use?

Could another draft composition have occurred, taking the same message
number in the drafts folder, between repl's failure and you realising it
hadn't been sent and looking for your lost work?

Cheers, Ralph.
