Automaticly append file extensions when exporting

Developers mailing list
The program should automaticly append the file extensions when exporting. If you export it as a PNG then the .PNG extension should be tacked on the end. If you try to manually change the extension to something different then the file type like trying to save a JPG format with a .PNG extension then the program should give you a warning message and ask if you are sure you want to do that.

Works for me, the file name extension is adjusted to the extension of
the file type I choose in the export dialog's "Select File Type" list.

Also works for me, when I change the extension, I get a dialog stating
that the extension doesn't match the file type, and asking me if I want
to do this anyway.

If both don't work for you, can you provide the list of steps you do?
