Both obvious suggestions.  The problem was that I assume that the numbers 
in the extension are timestamps, and I didn't know how to 'save as' with a 
recognisable timestamp.  Presumably if I do it the way Derek suggested I 
will be using a temporary file just long enough to do this, and the next 
save will put the genuine timestamp on it.
