Yes that's (almost) what I expected, thanks for this explanation (Yes 
this is really misleading to me).

But I'm still a bit confused and think it is buggy. If I start with 

1st time edit it and use save then I get a new image IMG_xyz_v1.JPG. Now 
I only see the latest version and in the right-side version pane I can 
click the little bullet to also show / hide the original version.

2nd time edit and use save. This time it's saved again into 
IMG_xyz_v1.JPG, still on the right hand side I can choose to also show / 
hide the original version

3rd time edit and use save as new version. Now I see IMG_xyz_v1.JPG and 
IMG_xyz_v2.JPG. On the right-hand side I can show / hide on of 
IMG_xyz.JPG, but not IMG_xyz_v1.JPG, it is always visible.

Btw. Under "Configure digikam" / "Editing Images": the two checkboxes 
"always show original images" and "always show intermediate snapshots" 
are both not selected!

I think this is somehow a bug!?
