[rancid] comparing device running config against startup config

We are using rancid to grab the running config and look for differences
over the previous running config. That works great and as advertised. I
was wondering what others are doing to catch the occasional issue where
someone makes a change to the running config but for whatever reason it
doesn't get saved and the device crashes - hence loosing that part of
the config.  

What suggestions do you have for ensuring the running config matches the
startup config?
