Let us put it this way: If I thought I might want to undo/modify changes later, 
I would Save As (or Save As Copy) in .xcf; but when I load a .jpg, work on it, 
and Save, I know that I wont be able to undo changes, and I expect the saved 
file to replace the original one, not to have the original left untouched and 
something completely different saved.

No, but it makes it more difficult, and less appealing, to use.

I will be now be looking for the 2.6.11 package since you kindly tols me it is 
free from that export/save sillyness.

Since Linux is all in favour of freedom of choice, how about offering the user 
an export / save choice in the Preferences dialogues ?
