Brasero: no way to change default destination when creating disk image

Bug Description

When burning a project to an image file on disk, there is no way to change
default destination path. It is always set to $HOME/brasero.iso for data
project, $HOME/brasero.cue for audio project etc.

There simply may be no room under user home directory or the user may prefer to
change the default destination path for one reason or another. It is pretty
standard for an application to allow the user to choose destination for the
resulting output.

The same applies to the working temporary directory which defaults to /tmp. I
do not have enough room in /tmp which is mounted as tmpfs on my system, and
have no good reason to grow its size. While default temporary dir can be easily
changed using gconf-editor, this is not user friendly. Some sort of preferences
dialogue would be useful in this case.

I think this bug is relatively important because when you test the use-case of there not being enough space available in the default path, Brasero doesn't even let you click the "Burn" button to further select a different location for the ISO. The only way around it is to add a single small file to the compilation, click burn, select a new path, click cancel, and then create the compilation.

I ran across this bug too.
Found the same bug at brasero bugzilla:

I tested the latest master version of brasero.
This bug is fixed in the master version, you can select a destination / path for the image.
I hope a new version of brasero including this fix is released soon

This can be marked as resolved, thanks

Yes, but the solution does not really answer the original bug (to change the default location).
