As a follow up, I've added a print confirmation so you at least know what's 
going on:

saved console to: /some/file/pdwindow.txt

See

As you suggest, the better fix would be to dynamically change the menu item 
listing but that requires an additional translation and extra code. If the main 
issue for you was "What was I saving?/Why did I save the console?", maybe this 
small confirmation print will suffice for now?
