easily change the trailing number.
If you think it a good idea have a tick box that allows you to NOT update the
name in the "destination file name". The argument why you want to keep the name

Perhaps it could be thought about as an enhancement, but the primary use case
doesn't seem to support it, and the behavior was confusing and not self-
consistent (eg, it's not clear why it would set the filename sometimes but not
Bug 3131 is a side-effect of this fix.
