I can confirm this. It happens with PNG fileformat if it was used last time with "Save as" function. 

If the last saved file format was JPEG, the "open with" will open the file correctly in later use/instances of the KSnapshot.

By some reason the KSnapshopt tries to offer non-saved file to external application last snapshot was stored as PNG. That can be noticed from the file path what external applications reports as missing. When last snapshot was saved as JPEG, the file gets always stored to $tmp directory. And if last snapshot was as PNG, the file is tried to be offered from the last stored directory and not from $tmp directory.
