What program is opening the existing file ?
Some programs do this: they open an existing file as
filename.some_extension, the filename.some_extension is what you alter
and when you save it, the original file is deleted and
filename.some_extension is renamed to 'filename'. So, in this case,
recycle is just doing the correct thing.
