Bug Description

We should use a welcomw widget to offer the option of creating a folder if a user navigates to a location that does not exist. I believe this was in an old mockup of Dan's. :)

I was working exactly on this for fixing bug #1022934.
But while doing so, I triggered some nasty bugs, that weren't reported because they are not present otherwise.
While I didn't document those bugs, I did document what I was doing and what was my progress here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ExQQkGt2js04lTtvJVDeuV-wPXhZiqYAEs3DdgRuVKI/edit

When I stumbled on those bugs, I started coding a much simpler thing that at least would fix bug #1022934.

I suggest marking this as Wishlist.

Clarification: It seems that I did, in fact, documented the bugs I stumbled upon. They are detailed in a link inside the GDoc.
