This is definately not a bug.

If you chose to save to a lossy format like jpeg you opt to eliminate some  
information from your image, you reduce the data , it a trade-off choice  
for the compression you get.

If you chose png or another non-layered format you won't get your layers  
saved, etc.

If you save to gif you only get a palette of 256 colours.

Gimp does all these things correctly. It is aimed at a competant user  
base, it does not try to be a beginner's guide using different formats.

I see no sense in dramatising this as "data loss".
