Can you please post the exact error / warning? Thanks.

This only happened with the downloaded file from tukuyomi (re-the paste/flip problem). I guess because I didn't save it...but should it do this anyway?
Since saving this file I have no further problems with the autosave function.

Could it be that you have first opened the file directly out of the ZIP file?

Yes that's exactly what I did!
This is not a bug after-all, please close.

Well, there would be better ways to handle this situation (e.g. auto saving to home directory in this case or in any case in which auto saving to drawing directory fails), so I leave it open for now.

Sure, sounds good.
