Saving/loading/appending isn't automatic. You need to bother with it.
Having a persistent buffer is like having a piece of paper next to
your computer: throwing it away is easy, but it isn't going to just
disappear on it's own.

Additionally, write-file renames the buffer, so next slime-scratch takes
you to another buffer, unless you rename the buffer manually after
saving it.
