Description Enrique Matías Sánchez 2007-11-28 23:24:06 UTC
Version:            (using KDE Devel)
Installed from:    Compiled sources
OS:                Linux

How to reproduce the bug:
- compose a drawing in KTuberling from KDE 4
- change playground
- get back to the previous playground... your drawing silently went to /dev/null !!

IMHO this violates the Principle of Least Surprise.

Most apps should warn the user before any action that would destroy his data. As this is a program for children, who might no be able to read, I think the drawings should just be preserved when circulating playgrounds. If the kid doesn't want to keep working on his old drawing, he can just press the `New' button and start a new one.
