Re: Directories/Files

One unix-like way to do a file dialogue that remembers directories is (I
think) to have a combo box with the directory in it, and a pull-down
menu of recent directories you have visited.

The pull-down menu should start off based on an environment variable or
config setting, or should at least contain $HOME and, if applicable,
the current working directory.

The text field needs a "goto" button, too, in most UI toolkits, since
changing a text field isn't enough to invoke an action (when do you know
the user has stopped changing it?).
