That will change/recreate the ncx and opf again.

So basically, you have the choice. It is not a bug, it is by deliberate design.
That will be great since for me I often only need to edit a page or add something that shouldn't change the TOC.

That said, if I do have a TOC already and want to keep it, wouldn't it seem more reasonable to have Sigil use the existing TOC and give the option to wipe/recreate it only if the user wants that? In my experience, once a TOC is built and working, I'd much rather keep and tweak it, or be able to simply add to it, before I'd ever want to just wipe it and start over. So even if something required a change to the TOC, the option to edit or add to the existing TOC seems like a more prudent option than being forced to start from scratch. But I usually keep a copy of the toc.ncx and after I've saved things I simply unzip the epub file and replace the empty Sigil one with my original. It works...no worries.
