Import .jpg changes suffix to .jpeg ("Open In")

Importing a .jpg using "Open In" causes a rename to .jpeg – This is sort of ‘uncool’. Would be nice to see that the file suffix doesn't change. So far, great app!

How exactly did you "import" the file?

I used Ducuments App's ‘open in’ feature. Maybe Documents is exporting the .jpg as .jpeg. Edit: So, checked it now and this seems to be the reason.

iOS 6 changed the "Open In" behavior. For some reason, the OS changes the file extension to the first one that is registered for this file type. For example ".md" files are renamed to ".markdown". There's nothing I can do on my end. I already reported it as a bug to Apple because I think the system should not change file extensions.
