1. Export it to JPEG and exit GIMP or close the file clicking No you don't want
to save as XCF. The point is for many work that are done and when it is saved
as a PNG, and OMG the file was now opened as PNG and I closed it ... all your
layers are gone! It's a failsafe.
2. Then it really is a minimal bother to anyone to Ctrl+E or Ctrl+Shift+E, be
done with the file and close GIMP or the file clicking No you don't want a XCF.
It simply required a little bit of not-so-hard rethinking.

Fortune cookie for Wednesday, August 15, 2012:
Scientists were preparing an experiment to ask the ultimate question.
They had worked for months gathering one each of every computer that was
built. Finally the big day was at hand. All the computers were linked
together. They asked the question, "Is there a God?". Lights started
blinking, flashing and blinking some more. Suddenly, there was a loud
crash, and a bolt of lightning came down from the sky, struck the
computers, and welded all the connections permanently together. "There
is now", came the reply.
