Bug Description

Finished editing a small video (3 minutes), and selected File -> Export, and used the Blutooth profile (default settings). I changed the default output directory from Desktop to /my/video/edit/. After 20 minutes the export window went away, but the file is not found in either /my/video/edit/ or Desktop. I've checked /my/video as well.

I'm using OpenShot 1.4.3 with Linux Mint 13.

Further testing shows that the files are being created, however they are being saved to the user's home directory instead of the directory initially chosen by browsing with Project Folder -> Other.

After creating the file (and finding it was incorrectly saved in /home/myusername/ instead of /my/video/projectabc/), I went back to File - Save Project As. I should have seen "projectabc" as the Project Folder, however "myusername" shows instead.

summary: - Files saved in Project Folder -> Other wind up in user
+ Files saved in Project Folder -> Other wind up in user's home directory

This behaviour occurs with File -> Save Project As, and File -> Export Video.
