When removing from automatic startup, the blueman saved the files normally.

I've always seen this behavior... And I'm still seeing it (as of may 2023) in blueman-applet 2.2.4 ...
I don't see what you call "automatic startup". I'm using i3wm, I start blueman in a user script ran at i3wm launch, so no "automatic startup" here and bug always there...
What's even worse is that I get a "popup" saying that "file xxx" is being received, when in fact it's silently failing in the background... So I just found the "temporary work around" (re-setting the Download dir everytime) by chance.
