It might be nice if C-u C-c C-x C-i could find open clocks in the open
file and in the agenda files, and offer them to you as things to clock
into.  Perhaps only if it can't find any recently-clocked tasks in the
normal way, which it can't do right after starting emacs.  It's pretty
rare for me to restart emacs in the middle of the workday, but when I do
(usually because of upgrading emacs or a major package), the
agenda-log-view shuffle /works/ (better than manually searching), but
could be better.
