            Bug ID: 374450
           Summary: DATA LOSS: Saving a file can overwrite other file
           Product: digikam
           Version: 5.3.0
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: NOR
         Component: showfoto
          Assignee: digikam-devel at kde.org
          Reporter: simon.persson at mykolab.com
  Target Milestone: ---

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open folder with photos using the "open folder" button.
2. Select a photo to edit by double-clicking on it in the thumbbar.
3. Make some edit to the photo.
4. Select another photo in the thumbbar, single click only.
5. Click "Save".

The problem is that the modified photo is now written to the filename of the
current selection in the thumbbar, overwriting the contents of that file. I
assume this is not the intended function, at least I found it very unexpected.
This happened to me several times, each time I noticed the data loss I restored
the overwritten photo from backup and continued editing other photos. Then it
happened again, and again. Took me a long time to understand what was going on.
