THAT sounds like a "bug" in the software to me. I never saw
anything like it, in any GIMP version on any operating system. This
is definitely not what the "save vs. export" (non)issue is about,
it's something else entirely.
Right now I don't have the time to dig into the problem at all, but
if you can get the GIMP to do this "bad thing" on demand, it has the
makings of a formal bug report.
