Crashes QGIS or corrupts data: Copied to github as #:10868


1. load a shapefile
2. "Save as shapefile..."
3. select an existing shapefile on the system; you want to overwrite and QGIS seems to allow it:

archsites.shp already exists.
Do you want to replace it?

4. "Yes" - error:

The shapefile could not be created (/home/shoofi/tmp/shape/archsites.shp)

5. on the terminal it reads:

ERROR 1: /home/shoofi/tmp/shape/archsites.shp is not a directory.
