Broken: version: 2.92.0 Beta, branch: master, commit date: 2021-02-03 20:05, hash: rBebd2aa789e40
Worked: (newest version of Blender that worked as expected)

Short description of error
Using ExportHelper, changing filename_ext (which is an enum) appends the fulfilled ext to the previous name + ext instead of only changing the extension.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • In scripting workspace, open this file and run it:
  • In the top right corner, change the extension in the enum.
  • The picked extension is appended to the current filename + ext instead of changing the extension only.

Can confirm this is a bit awkward to use.
I think there are ways to get around this, but will check on a general fix.
