Jonathan, I hope that you realized that when editing a JPG, repeatedly saving/exporting to JPG (your step 4) reduces the quality (actually compresses / deletes data). Maybe this has been working for what you are doing, but I beleive it is contrary to what most users do -- because they don't want to diminish quality/data.

   5. Type ctrl-q.
   6. GIMP tells me I have unsaved changes, even though I just saved
      them with ctrl-e.
   7. Click "Discard Changes" to really exit.
