It doesn't do this, it sounds like a pretty good idea.

One problem with the whole recently-used-files thing is that 
we don't assume the user uses GNOME from only one machine, so there
are multiple file namespaces. I'm not sure what to do about that at
all, I think we have to just ignore the problem for now. Or maybe
stick the host name in the recently-used entry.
