Description Tim Waugh 2004-08-10 16:30:46 UTC
Description of problem:
This isn't a gedit bug, but I've no idea which component is right. 
The symptom can be seen in gedit though.  The "save as" dialog box
doesn't behave correctly when given a full pathname.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gedit
2. Ctrl-Shift-S to "Save As" 
3. Type a full pathname with a leading '/', such as '/tmp/foo'
4. Click Save
Actual results:
Nothing happens.

Expected results:
File should be saved and dialog should disappear.

In fact the behaviour I see with current rawhide is that the 'Save in
folder' drop-down changes from 'Home' to 'Desktop' -- but the file is
not saved, even though I gave a full path and clicked the save button.

Cannot reproduce with 2.7.92-1, seems to be fixed (also is probably a
GTK bug, not gedit)
