Short description of error
OK, I noticed this yesterday when I easily overwritten a backup of a addon.

Loaded text file and path

Do "Save As" and the path gets changed. This is why files get overwritten ,but the file is not even loaded inside Blender.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Save text (.1 in pic)
  2. Save text again with new name using "Save As"
  3. Make changes to original text inside Blender
  4. Click "Save" to save changes to original (.2 in pic)
  5. Changes got to saved to the last save instead of original (.3 in pic)

Thanks for the report. It seems that you are "mistaking" the concepts of Save As and Save Copy. The tool is working as intended. What you expect to happen would be "Save Copy".
