Perhaps some of the file plug-ins are buggy. I get the complaint:
ERROR: Procedural database execution failed on invalid input arguments:
(gimp_file_save 1 0 4 "zoop.xpm" "zoop.xpm")
and nothing was saved. (Running in interactive mode works.)
TGA and XCF works. PNG tells me "can't save image with alpha". Weird.
