I saved some *.pd file. And when I try to press Ctrl+S or click on the File → Save, — I have dialog window ‘Save As’ and when I choose same file, — it asking me about overwrite file.
i've never seen that before.
which exact version of Pd are you using on which platform.
do you have any gui-plugins installed?
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
I detect this. It happens only if I have "Untitled" in the name of patch-file. I have some Untitled-%d.pd files for testing. Files with specify names saved correctly.
Last PD from git (commit 786de7b0e900f373ac071bb87e5097fe92693b2d), OpenSUSE 13.1, no any plugins.

I'm using pd vanilla (not extended) from this repo: https://sourceforge.net/p/pure-data/pure-data/
Pd's way to detect whether a file has never been saved before (that is: it's created anew) is by looking at it's name and see whether it starts with "Untitled" (the default name a window gets when you do Ctrl-N).
whether this is smart is debatable, but for know, you should not use files named "Untitled..."
