Valid point. If I am trying to save to recover a deleted file this
becomes a data loss scenario.

In the same way that I had to make a small edit to save the comment
because of the parasite bug, if I want to resave a jpeg with various
compression ratios until I get a suitable result , I would presumably
have to Save As... to serval new files and clean up with a file manager
When I have to start looking for work arounds like this , the interface
is trying to be too clever.
