Description Raphael Kubo da Costa 2011-10-03 02:09:21 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                FreeBSD

Right now, when one launches the "Export Public Key" dialog, chooses to export it to a file and enters an existing file name, KGpg will overwrite the existing file's contents without any confirmation, in some cases leading to data loss.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
- Create a file somewhere.
- Launch the Export Public Key dialog.
- Choose the "File" option.
- Enter the name of the file which has been created.

Actual Results:  
KGpg will write the contents of the selected key into the file without asking if the file should be overwritten.

Expected Results:  
KGpg asks the user whether he/she really wants to overwrite the contents of the existing file before proceeding.

ask the user before overwriting files when exporting keys

Now when the user wants to export the public key to a file and that file
already exists the user is asked about overwriting the file.
