Maybe bury the buffer. Invoke for example M-x compile RET and be aware that you want to edit the compile command or use an already used value from the history (so you're waiting, contemplating, pressing again and again with little breaks a cursor key or trying to formulate an expression to search for in history). Now use a second shell or a second GNU Emacs. In that Emacs another compilation might be running in that buried buffer directory, maybe some configure script that produces all the while new files which dired-mode can detect from time to time. Or, in that shell, cd to that directory and do 'touch shitty\ file'. In first Emacs the (compile) command will be overwritten.

Similarly when you are composing a string-replace or replace-regexp or grep-find or ... command and in some dired buffer the number of files or directories changes, then your work is overwritten.
