> Hello, i have a question, when i open a new file and export it with ctrl+e, the gimp 2.8 exports the file with the current file name as expected but after i save (with save as) file with a new file name, ctrl+e exports the new file with the old file name, and i think it has to be changed, because it is an absolutely new file and it is senseless to keep the old file name for exporting the new file...

More specifically:

1 - Open any convenient (non XCF) image file.  E.g. "filename.png"
2 - Access the Export command.  The default filename shown is "filename.png" (e.g. whatever the source filename was).
3 - Access the Save As command.  The default filename shown here is "filename.xcf".
4 - Save the image as an XCF but with a different filename, e.g. "filename.different.xcf" .
5 - Access the Export command again.  The default filename is now "filename.different.png", not "filename.png".

Why is that?
