QGIS should raise a warning when a wrong type is being saved into an attribute tables column.
When a string ('foo') is calculated for a integer column using the field calculator the result is shown as 'foo' in the table as long as a cell gets a focus or the changes are saved. Without any warning or hint the strings are forced to 0 (if not convertible to int) on save. the user may expect an early warning (e.g. when the field calculator does it's job) that types are incompatible.
