When printing as a bitmap, PgS changes the specified filename. For example, if specifying "test.png" as the filename and printing a single page PgS will actually use "test1.png". If replacing that file so selecting it in the filesave requester PgS will prompt about overwriting the file but in fact will not, using instead "test11.png".

This is a behavioral issue presumably to handle printing a set of pages in a series of files numbered sequentially. The bug comes when specifying the correct base name. For example, if "test1.png" already exists and the filename specified is "test.png" PgS discovers that it will overwrite "test1.png" and prompts for permission, but fails to save anything.
