well save for web is a plugin but it probably could be extended to save a  
selection. Sounds like a time saver.

Yes I find this annoying as well. I always end up having to set the  
destination each time I save something. That may be gtk filechooser (one  
of my pet hates on linux) rather than gimp directly. Even if I open a file  
and want to save_as straight away it seem to want to put is somewhere  
else. The time it takes to log a directory exaserbate this problem as well.

Some studies were done last year on usage but since the UI is undergoing a  
major design effort now it's probably a good time to point out anything  
that holds you back in your work flow.
