Bug Description

This was seen on Samsung Galaxy Ace on Android 2.3.3. And Windows Vista.

Steps taken:

1. Start any game ;
2. Go to the Preferences screen by pressing the Menu button on the phone or right-clicking on Windows or using the Prefs. button under the text window;
3. Get to the Save Game menu;
4. Click/touch the 'Auto' tab at the top of the screen and go back to the game however you like;
5. From the normal game go to "Save Game" again.

Results:

This is confusing to the user because they cannot actually make a save on the 'Auto' tab, but if they forget that they previously selected it, it just looks like the game is preventing them from being able to save at all.

Is there any reason to display the 'Auto' tab to the user when they're saving, since they can't make a save there? If it is considered a good thing to see it for some reason, then Ren'Py should probably at least automatically switch to another, viable save tab when the user first hits 'Save Game' or whatever to go into the save menu screen. Perhaps either the first page of saves, or the last page upon which the user saved would be good defaults.
