Please excuse me, Mukund, but I will be very surprised
if this has something to do with broken EXIF data.

I have 3 cameras: a Canon SD500, a Nikon Coolpix 4500, and a
Panasonic FZ50. For the 3, I never have any problem with GIMP
(or any other program). Now, for the 3, the "Save as..."
 dialog (yes, Sven, the "Save as..." dialog) show no "Save EXIF data"
option, and for the 3 the EXIF data is now removed.


1) Is the EXIF source in the all the 3 cameras (of 3 different brands) broken?
2) Why all the other graphic programs that I use (showfoto, gqview, gthumb,
     exiftool) always showed the EXIF data with no problem, and still show?
3) Why the "Save EXIF data" option in the "Save as..." dialog is no longer 
4) Why GIMP deletes the EXIF data now?
5) If broken, why previous versions of GIMP preserve the EXIF data?
     GIMP 2.3.16 2.3.17 and 2.2.14 still work perfectly for me
     (in this respect; I had to stop using 2.3.17 because it crashed
     consistently, probably because of its known bug).

    Thanks the time you took to answer, Mukund.
