ImageMagick can inadvertently delete image file
Last modified: 2008-04-10 14:43:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Display an image with the following command:
display file://<name of image file>
Then edit the image, then exit, selecting "Don't save" when prompted whether to
save the changes. The image file is deleted. The problem does not happen if
the "file://" prefix is not used.

This doesn't happen anymore as of F8. Although when exiting after editing, it
doesn't prompt whether to save the changes, it simply exits without saving. I
don't know whether this should be considered correct behavior or not.
thanks for the update
