1) Create new vector layer

2) Type filename at "Filename field" (for example, 'city')

At result existing file with name 'city.shp' will be rewrote without warnings.

Confirmed also under linux.

I believe that the description misses to say that "a layer named city.shp already exist" and that the new vector is being saved in the same directory were the layer "city.shp" stay.
