Import snapshot and export to JPEG

The following observations are for both a stack in the IDE (1.1.1) and 
as a standalone on TiBook Mac OS X.

The import snapshot command works fine but when I select the area to 
capture the dragging leaves a lot of rectangle lines visible on the 
screen. This doesn't effect the captured image but is distracting. I've 
tried locking the screen but then nothing is captured.

The after I select the image I save it as a JPEG with a .jpg extension. 
This works fine except the file type in the Finder doesn't think it is a 
graphic image. When I double click on it, TextEdit is opened and a bunch 
of text is displayed. If I open it in Preview it looks fine.

Anyone have ideas on these?
