I moved a layer in a big image with 10 layers and during redrawing of
the image, I saved it to the disk.
Result: 8 layers of the 10 disappeared.
It is obvious GIMP absolutely ignores consistency - you can for example
run two different filters or scripts simultaneously and the image
becomes a total garbage then when they fight over the data.
This should be fixed.
