I can't seem to reproduce the issue either. I think it had something to 
do with a corrupt file that umbrello was loading at startup. (As the 
last file I was working on when I quit umbrello the last time.) 
Unfortunately umbrello has corrupted that file further and nuked all 
content. (it is now 0 bytes.) So whatever was causing the problem is 
lost at this point. This issue of nuking the contents of an XMI file has 
been reported before. I would suggest making a backup copy prior to 
writing a file. (And make the auto save function save to some other 
file! eg. emacs uses #<filename> as an auto save file.)
