Not reproduced with Inkscape 0.48+devel r11441 on OS X 10.7.4, assuming that 'Unapply it' means to deactivate the filter of the currently selected object in the filter editor: the newly added predefined filter effect is added at the top of the list of existing filter definitions.

Known minor "issue": the newly added filter doesn't show the name from the label on the filter definition - instead it displays its ID. The name in the list of existing filter definitions in the filter editor is only updated to show the name as defined in the filter definition when adding yet another new filter definition - either by applying another predefined one from the menu (to a different object), or by adding a new filter definition (clicking on the 'New' button).

Reproduced in a second row of tests: the trigger appears to having the filter editor opened when quitting Inkscape and its state remembered between sessions.

Steps to reproduce (with default preferences):
1) launch inkscape (without file) -> opens a new default document
2) draw an object and apply a filter effect.
3) open filter editor
4) quit inkscape
5) launch inkscape (without file) -> empty new document, with the filter editor open in the dock
6) open last edited file via 'File > Open recent…'
6) deactivate current filter effect for the object
7) add new predefined filter effect from the menu

-> newly added filter effect is initially not added to the lost of existing filter definitions in the filter editor.

The problem does not occur if the filter editor is opened and closed within the current editing session.

The filter dialog is connected to the filter resource (in src/ui/dialog/filter-effets-dialog.cpp:1176), but it doesn't seem to work correctly in that case.

Fix for ~suv's test case in comment #2.
Update the resource connection when the document is replaced.
