Bug Description

Binary package hint: inkscape

Just as summary describes. Repeatable with:

0. Edit some file.
1. File → Save a Copy
2. Choose a filename that already exists.
3. It will ask "Replace existing file?" Answer "No"
4. Rename to a new filename and click save.

It saves the new file, but now the *new* file is the active file. It's like the "No" response returned to the wrong section of code (to "Save As" as opposed to "Save a Copy")

The patch fixes the sp_file_save_dialog call, which occurs after user clicks "no" in file replace dialog.

The attachment "save_copy.patch" seems to be a patch. If it isn't, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are a member of the ~ubuntu-reviewers, unsubscribe the team.
