Description of problem:
In case a new folder was created and changed into during browsing through folders for storing a file, the filename was removed from input field.
Therefore one has to remember the filename or have to repeat from beginning (without creation of folder, because it already exists now)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change download settings to ask every time where to store the file
2. Select an URL for downloading
3. Select store to filesystem
4. Browse to folder
5. Create new folder
6. Change into it
7. Save file
Actual Results: Won't work, because filename field is empty after changing into folder
Expected Results: Ergonimic working...
This problem exists also in Mozilla.
This problem also exists in gedit.
That makes me think it's a GTK2 problem.
It's definitely gnome-wide.
I didn't see this bug when I posted
Go there for a workaround that works as long as the parent dir of the new dir is
not otherwise empty.
BTW: it's solved in FC5, and I no longer use FC4
Ooops, closing bug was not my intention...I do not expect any gnome update for
FC4, so I changed to cantfix.
