The fileselector is only a widget. It is the duty of the application,
which uses it, to set the proper wmclass name to the GtkWindow, which
will make the window manager remember it's size and other attribs.

Although, the widget itself could set the wmclass name to remember the
wm attribs, it is not considered advisable, because not all applications
may be interested in having that stuff. Interested applications can
always go ahead and set the wm class name for it.

Fame may be fleeting but obscurity is forever.
