Shutter doesn't save to custom directories

Bug Description

It doesn't save screenshot location for directories other than
my home directory, desktop, "/", documents, downloads, music, pictures, video.

If I close the settings screen with my custom location set, it saves to my home directory instead. If I open settings again, it still shows the location(not my home directory) unless I restart the application. Then it just shows my home directory..
If I try to change my location in ~/.shutter/profiles/default.xml (profile is named default) and restart the application, it overwrites it back to my home dir.

I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 x86_64 and newest version of Shutter from PPA (0.90~ppa4~quantal1 ), rev. 1252.
I'm using XFCE btw., but not xubuntu..

I had the same problem on Mint 14 with Shutter 0.89. I fixed by changing the 'folder'-Keyword in the /home/<user>/.shutter/profiles/<profileName>.xml or /home/<user>/.shutter/settings.xml. Anyway I changed both and now it's working ;)

This is still broken on the latest version, (0.93). Any ideas why?
