Description Stephen Gallagher 2012-04-20 10:39:42 EDT
Description of problem:
When selecting a file attachment from an email to "Save as", the file dialog always selects "Recently Used" as the location to save (which is an invalid location). This is a regression from Evolution 3.2.3 which would always direct the save-as dialog to the last folder into which you had saved an attachment.

Please restore this functionality, as it was much more convenient when saving multiple files from one or more email into the same folder without having to re-navigate each time.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open an email with an attachment
2. "Save as" the attachment
3. Browse to a folder and save the file
4. Open another email with an attachment
5. "Save as" that second attachment

Actual results:
The file browser is pointing to "Recently Used"

Expected results:
The file browser should start at the location you saved the previous file.

Apologies for the auto-links. Apparently Bugzilla has a keyword on attachment.
