I think this is not really a bug, but a sequence of process & me not knowing the backup file was loaded & I continue editing circuit & press save as normal.

After an app crash the xxx_backup.simu file is auto loaded next start.
clicking save button saves the xxx_backup.simu file,  but it will be deleted upon exit. (also same if click 'Save' button in MainWindow::closeEvent.
"Circuit has been modified. Do you want to save your changes?")

Maybe a popup message when the app starts with "xxx_backup.simu" loaded & prompt user to 'save_as' before continue or confirm file use xxx.simu (without '_backup').

I should remember now to save_as after an app crash now I know.
Its easy to test by copy the last used file back to the folder with xxx_backup.simu, then start app.

Yes.. this is something that must be addressed.
The current implementation is somehow incomplete and confusing.

By now a Warning Message Box will popup.
At least the user knows what is happening:
