Hmm this seems to work for me, what is the exact step-by-step?

There is a benefit of enforcing a separation between save and export, 
but I don't see a big benefit of enforcing this kind of separation

I'm not able to reproduce this either, what is the step-by-step?

Do you mean 'Colors -> Curves...' and 'Colors -> Levels...' together 
with 'View -> Fullscreen'? Seems to work fine for me, what is the 
step-by-step? Are we even running the same version (git master)? :)
