Gnumeric exhibits a troubling behavior when saving files. The
following two files received different treatment:
File #1: received a message that the extension does not match the file
File #2: saved with the .gnumeric extension,without complaint or
Is this a gnome behavior? I think not, because other programs do not
do this. This seems to me to be a derrier-garde bug, not a feature.
Reminds me of years gone by when I used windoze.
I really like to use various ploys in writing long filenames that I can
remember, usually with multiple suffixes. In NO OTHER program, in the
ten years of using GNU/Linux, has this behavior been encountered. May
I request either assistance and explanation, or, better, to do away
with this terrible "bug".

cooperate; it is the basis of an antisocial scheme to dominate
people. --Richard M. Stallman
