Subject: [Gimp-user] gimp 2.8 export, after save as keeps old files name

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... 
Is this a bug or did developers do this feature intentionally?

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 

Why is that?

Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.

Yes, this what i tried to ask. We create a new file with "save as" and it keeps exporting with the old file 
name and overwrites file exported before, this doesn't make sense to me.
