"save as" dialog bug

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):
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
File should be saved and dialog should disappear.

No, it happens with any full pathname with a leading '/'. There is no
error dialog, it's just that nothing happens (and especially: not the
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)
