I have to ask, do really not save your edits as XCF files? Even if I am
doing a red eye removal, I duplicate the layer and work on that, saving the
file as an XCF, so I can always revert back, if needed....

I find the new paradigm quite intuitive, once I thought about it and gave
it a try.  The native format is XCF, which is the only thing you save.
 Everything else is an export to a lossy (in some manner) format.

The inconsistent behaviour of the overwrite should probably be brought up
to the gimp devs, if it doesn't line up with the outline.
