I didn't read the huge paragraph I snipped, but I think you completely
misunderstood the reply to the bug. The bug is that ctrl-e doesn't
work in 2.8.0 when you import a file until you do 'export'. This is
fixed in 2.8.1, you can now always press ctrl-e to export a file. If
it is imported, it will prompt for a new name, if you already picked
an export name it will silently export to the same name again.
