I am using GV 3.6.3 installed from OpenSuse 11.2 repository, KDE 4.3.1 "release 6". Since I am not proficient to install a version other than provided by the repository, I could not verify if this bug is still present in later versions.
Well, the official sources do not have this bug. It has been introduced by Novell who releases OpenSuse.

I investigated this bug by installing OpenSuse 11.0 ( I do not have a DVD of OpenSuse 11.2, you see ).

I can confirm that this bug occurs when using OpenSuse 11.0 with the binary of gv shipped with it. I furthermore can confirm that compiling and installing GNU gv 3.6.3 and 3.6.8 from the official sources lead to a version of GNU gv without this bug (using OpenSuse 11.0, of cause). I also can confirm that recompiling the Source RPM of Opensuse compiles to a binary with this bug.
This behavior is very disconcerting since the user may think he is about to overwrite the file he wants to open.
Surely it is, but it's not my bug. Please report the bug to Novel: http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bug_Reports
You may feel free to include the above facts I confoirmed.
