Gramps 3.2.3 on Dell A860 w/Linux Ubuntu 10.04.

Files created by Gramps on Export XML format ...

/home/ben/local/backup/Alldredge.gramps
/home/ben/local/backup/Alldredge.gramps.bak

The .bak file seems to be the previously saved version of
Alldredge.gramps ... created by Gramps (or Linux ??), not by me.

As Jerome says, apparently we copy an existing .gramps file to .gramps.bak, then save the new .gramps.
So by taking a backup copy of both, you can rename .gramps.bak to .gramps, and then import it in gramps.
