Symlink bug report

Karmus
When saving on top of a symlink, the program follows the symlink and
creates the file with the destination file name and type extension. This
can be problematic if saving in PNG, and the outcome is JPEG.

You have a symlink

foo.png -> foo.jpg

and then you tell GIMP to export to foo.png, effectively
writing to foo.jpg

GIMP is behaving exactly as it should, the broken symlink
is your own fault.
