Also, John, I just posted a further comment on that bug.
It looks like the error about "worldmap_japan-back.png" is an erroneous
one.  It's a leftover error from the "New" dialog looking to see
if the Starter image in question (the last one it comes across) has
a background layer.

When Tux Paint fails to save, this error (which was hanging about in
'strerror()', I guess?!) gets displayed by Tux.  So it sounds like
a permissions issue.

That brings us back to what you were asking about... it'd be great
of Bruce, Henry, and anyone else who sees this error, can
respond to these ones:

Thanks, all!

PS - It looks like the error checking in Tux Paint needs a bit of help.
I'll add a new Bug Request on SourceForge to cover that one.

Cc'ing Bruce in case he's not subscribed to this list.
Cc'ing John so he sees this ASAP.
