Bug report #2292
qgis saves .SHP file as .shp
|Affected QGIS version:||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Unix||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||Resolution:||fixed|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||Copied to github as #:||12352|
Load polygonal shapefile FOO.SHP (with FOO.DBF, FOO.SHX etc). Enable editing. Select two features and use Merge Selected Features. Disable editing and save changes. Qgis gives you FOO.shp, FOO.shx and FOO.dbf alongside your original files.
Just moving nodes around doesn't do this, but deleting a feature does, so I suspect it's whenever the structure changes and the whole shapefile needs rewriting....
Probably a Unixy case-sensitive file system problem only.

- Resolution set to fixed
- Status changed from Open to Closed
As it seems to be fixed in OGR (gdal 1.6.4), I guess that this bug can be marked as FIX cause it is not QGis related...
It will be fixed when you will get a new version of GDAL in your distribution !
