Another, similar classic is accidentally opening the same file twice in different sessions, editing one, saving and closing it, and then habitually saving and closing the other on top of the first.

What I've learned is to only have one editor open at a time, ever.

What I should have learned is to use an editor which notices a file that got changed out from under it.
