Just to reminisce about an old, old glitch relating to exported graphics 
and embedded previews that I vaguely remember encountering in one of the 
earliest releases of Mathematica.

If I'm recalling it correctly, you could write a graphic, including a 
preview, from Mathematica to a file.  Then you could write a new, 
changed or updated graphic to the same file name -- and the old embedded 
preview was left unchanged.  You could end up with an graphic file in 
which the graphic itself and the preview were totally different.

But this was a long time ago . .  .
