           Summary: save sometimes does not default to save-as.
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: netterfield astro utoronto ca

Version:           1.2.0_devel (using KDE 3.4.3, Gentoo)
Compiler:          gcc version 3.4.4 (Gentoo 3.4.4-r1, ssp-3.4.4-1.0, pie-8.7.8)
OS:                Linux (x86_64) release 2.6.12-gentoo-r6

Create a kst plot from the command line
(eg, kst -y 1 data.dat)


A sorry dialog appears which complains
": Could not open file for saving. The plot.... [OK]"

Instead, it should default to saveAs.

The bug is particularly serious if, after modified has been set (eg, by adding a label) the user file->quits before saving.  Kst attempts to file-save, as expected, can't, and presents the above sorry box.  Clicking OK closes kst.

If the plots were created by the data wizard instead, this bug does not occur, and the saveAs dialog appears, as expected.
