Hmm, this sounds more like a GTK+ issue.

I can't seem to reproduce it for myself.  If I switch folders while saving an
attachment the base file name remains unchanged.

I'm using:


But I don't think there's been any changes related to this between Evolution
2.12 and 2.21.

Can you please provide the output of "rpm -q gtk2"?
Comment 2 Marc Wiriadisastra 2007-11-02 12:16:02 EDT
gtk2-2.12.1-5.fc8 is the result.
Comment 3 Milan Crha 2007-11-02 12:46:01 EDT
I've same, and it's not Evolution issue at all, it's a gtk+ issue, because I can
do the same in gedit, for example. Though, it is very hard to reproduce it
consistently, for me. How do you choose your directory? It erased the filename
when choosing directory from bookmarks, but not every time. Also, I use my own
bookmark there.
Comment 4 Marc Wiriadisastra 2007-11-02 13:56:27 EDT
My double clicking on a folder.
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-11-06 15:45:22 EST
I can reproduce this behavior using Evolution, GEdit, and gThumb.

I could not reproduce it using Epiphany or Gnumeric.

Might have something to do with the way the suggested name is set in the
GtkFileChooserDialog.  Evolution does gtk_file_chooser_set_current_folder_uri()
followed by gtk_file_chooser_set_current_name().

Kickin' this over to gtk2 for now.
Comment 6 Zing 2007-11-12 19:23:35 EST
I can reproduce in seamonkey and gedit.  The reproduction recipe is very subtle
for me, meaning it seems to work sometimes and in certain circumstances.  I can
make it happen most consistently by clicking on a Places bookmark that is
_above_ the directory the filechooser wants to save in.

This is on F8 - gtk2-2.12.1-5.fc8.x86_64.

still open.
