I use Debian (one machine with testing and another with unstable; both
version are 2.14.3) and I never set any search path.
But what I see is that both have a common path already configured: my
home (see https://i.imgur.com/9ucjAwA.png for an example).

I think that two things could be improved here:
1) have an empty list by default (ie, don't set the user home as a search path)
2) have an option to enable/disable recursion in the specified paths

For item 2, suppose the user has this directory structure:

/home/user/SVG
/home/user/SVG/scratch

He wants to use the SVG files inside "/home/user/SVG", excluding
everything from the scratch dir.
If he sets "/home/user/SVG" as a search path, everything in scratch
will also be included.

As it is now it seems that it's not possible to restrict a recursion
like this (ie, everything in a specified path will always be fully
traversed).
