  Viewer fails to save a JPEG with non-JPEG filename extension

Status in shotwell package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  == Steps to reproduce ==
  1. Download
  2. Open the image in Shotwell Viewer: $ shotwell 193px-Car_crash_1.jpg
  3. Select File > Save As...
  4. Select OK (without changing Format from "Current", or any other parameters)
  5. Enter "193px-Car_crash_1.png" (without quotes) as the filename, select OK

  == What happens ==
  The viewer now displays a black screen, with the text "Photo source file 
missing:" followed by the (.png-ending) image path entered in the dialog. The 
file has not been saved.

  == What I expect to happen ==
  For the (now misnamed) .png-ending file to have been saved, and be opened in 
the Viewer.

  == Other notes ==
  * If a file with the .png ending already exists, and I try overwriting it 
with the JPEG, the black error screen does not appear, and the viewer appears 
as if it had saved the file. But the file hasn't actually been saved; if 
193px-Car_crash_1.png was an empty file before seemingly overwriting it, it 
remains empty.
  * I'm (intentionally) not doing an actual Format change in the first Save As 
dialog here. If I do select PNG as the format, then saving the file does work 
as expected (using any filename extension).
  * I used .png just as an example here. Any variant of /jpe?g/i as the 
extension seems to work as expected, whereas anything else (.gif, .foo etc.) 
results in the same "file missing" error as above.
  * If the original file is a PNG file, saving it with .jpg (or any other 
extension for that matter) seems to work as expected.
