Photoshop psd to jpg "save as" issue

I believe I have found a bug with Photoshop 4,5,and 5.1. I have tested and encountered this issue on multiple intel mac machines running 10.6.4 and 10.6.8.
I started with an adobe photshop file (.psd file) with multiple layers. The image is then cropped. I do a file save as a jpg image, then close the file. The psd file is saved and changed to reflect the cropping on the jpg file, and there is no dialog requesting the psd to be saved, or closed. Same will happen if a colored box is placed in the psd on a layer and then the file is "save as"d a jpg image. Psd file is saved/changed when the jpg is closed and no dialog is called to save the psd file (even though it has changed the file.)

Photoshop 4 is about 15 years old.
Do you mean Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS5.5?

I have duplicated this problem now with images using different file formats with layers and "save as" on 2 other machines today. I have one machine that is not experiencing this problem, it is an older non Intel mac using from the same pool of licenses and installs as the other machines running cs4.

Ran into something interesting... When I do a "Duplicate..." under the "image" menu and save that file out as a flattened tif or jpg, I get an error..

Error 8103: The document has not yet been saved

Line:54

Which is interesting because the .tif I had saved out IS saved to my desktop.

Why are you using a script when saving? That isn't normal.

I'm not using a script. (Not to my knowledge before now ... see note below). The only way I can save a copy of the file without it also saving over the original file at the same time is to either make a copy of that file on my desktop and reopening it to save the new file and then disposing of fore said file, or using the duplicate command to create a new image.

That being said, I believe I may have figured out the issue. I checked the machines in our photo studio, and those machines did not have the "Save As" issue. They also were not using 2 of the utility software programs on our desktop machines. These are Xinet and Soxy. I have a suspicion that Soxy (a utility used to open adobe files in their original version) has somehow "embedded" itself within Photoshop CS4 through CS5.1, and is affecting the way Photoshop behaves and saves files.

Not Soxy... It is a Xinet issue. I have been sent a patch from them. Thanks for your time... hopefully this post will help someone else if they have a problem like this.
