Description

After joining a dbf table to the attribute table of a vector layer and
leaving "Cache join layer in virtual memory" not selected, the attribute
table is correct and the layer automatically enters in editing mode.
Nevertheless, toggling editing off does not save the layer with its new table:
if the layer is removed from the TOC ans loaded again, the newly joined fields
are gone.
Currently, the only way of consolidating the new attribute table is using Save As...

The join function does not write joined tables to the original tables intentionally.
However, it should probably notify the user that edits in the joined fields will be lost (or try to redirect the edits to the table where the field comes from)

I believe that after Marco explanation it should be possible to change subject and description of this ticket, eventually making it a features request to have the warning added. Please leave feedback.
