this can bite you though.

here is the case where it fails miserably:

the dialog shows up and the name in the location area is highlighted.

expand the twisty for the advanced file location and move to a different
location in your directories.

once you and the file selector are where you want the image to be, start
typing.  a little box appears that accepts text and the highlighted text
in the location area remains highlighted/unfocused.  is it a search that
is triggered by that?  whatever happens, the dialog accepts the typed
text in the new weird and slightly unintuitive (still, sorry) text
window and after you have finished typing what you want the file to be
named, the new area disappears with no saving having been accomplished.

as a user, you say wtf! (to yourself since it is not correct procedure
to express opinions about the designer).  click in the location area.
the highlighting goes away.  rehighlight it and retype your file name.

i like the new file selector.  it is easy like that now.
