Just had another look. So, my original statement that other gtk-3 apps
show "Recent" for Save is probably wrong (also checked eog and evince).
Not sure what made me believe that. Only gtk-2 apps do (e.g. gimp,
inkscape, chromium, libreoffice, all checked under Ubuntu 16.04).
Nevertheless, it's an inconsistency of the user experience.
