I think there is a case of creeping handle-esoteric-cases-itis here. It
should only need to do this:

Don't warn if it was previously saved to *the same disk with *the original

The SqC problem is solved by comparing the name of the root volume the
imaged is saved onto. If it is different from the last one, it has been
moved, so offer the warning. This will be triggered unless you download the
update to the disk Bruce prepared the update on (let's hope he doesn't call
it 'Macintosh HD').

trying to keep it simple,
