No, GIMP is not crashing.
The  pix.xcf is still on the screen.

Old way:   Create file 300x300, work on it.
Save as orchard.xcf, all layers intact, everything fine.
Scaled image to 72x72, named it Orchard-scaled.png (or .jpg if that's what
they ask for).
I then had that Orchard-scaled.png on my screen and I could make changes if
I wanted to before mailing it.
It seems I can't do that any more.
Now, if I want to see my 72x72 Orchard-scaled.png, I have to open it, and
as soon as I open it, it becomes
a file that I can't mail because it's no longer a .png.
So my Q, is there a way to open that .png, keep it a .png,  tweak it if I
want to, save the .png and mail it?
