Here is a politically incorrect answer:

If you are the person who is inheriting the frequency, and 
you think the TU from the departing station might have 
gotten obliterated by a quick caller, don't worry about it, 
unless you hear some frantic call for attention in the 
background. Of course, if there is any hint that the 
departing station (W1XYZ) asked for a repeat, just send 

If you are the person who must vacate the frequency, and 
your request for a repeat got obliterated by a quick caller, 
do not send a frantic call for attention. Just listen! The 
inheriting station is about to send his information again, 
with the serial number increased by one. There should be 
plenty of time, because he must send the two callsigns 
before he gets into the meat of the exchange.
