Description S. Burmeister 2006-09-21 12:06:30 UTC
Version:           1.4.0 (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

If I click on an image-link, the image is openend in a new konqueror tab, using gwenview. If I select "Save as.." from the File-menu and click on some existing file and then on "Save". The file is overwritten without warning.

This happen even on gwenview 2.0
Comment 2 Aurelien Gateau 2007-12-30 00:00:17 UTC
I do not have the time to fix this in the KDE3 version (Gwenview 1.4.x) but it will be fixed in KDE4.1. I can't fix it for KDE4.0 because fixing it requires adding a new string and we are in string-freeze mode.
Comment 3 S. Burmeister 2007-12-30 00:30:28 UTC
Since this bug leads to data-loss I think the string freeze does not prevent a bugfix.
Comment 4 FiNeX 2007-12-30 00:40:21 UTC
I agree with S.Burmeister: string freeze is less important than this.
Comment 5 Aurelien Gateau 2008-01-03 22:51:34 UTC
I see your point, but it's too late for KDE 4.0.0 anyway (tagging will start in a few hours). I will fix it in 4.1.0 and will probably be able to backport it to 4.0.1.
