I've never had it crash, but that doesn't mean an automatic copy of the
panic file is a good idea :)

Same here, I run winmoo like this:

winmoo -o -l %1.log %1.db %2

where %1 is the base db name, and %2 is the port.

No, it really doesn't.  I even loaded up a 21MB (on disk) db and had several
people connected  without any problems.
