In the event of sudden power off (like hold power button or power outage), IE9 will lose all the saved passwords. Why is that so? Is this intentional and why?

Yeah, that is pretty annoying. Every now and then, my notebook overheats causing Windows to freeze. When that happens, I have to hold the power button down to force a cold boot. About 90% of the time an IE window is open when I have to force the cold boot, so I end up losing all of my saved passwords.
