Bug Description

OO 64 bits on EEEPC 1015PX

Tested on thunderbird, firefox, evince

On evince : File->Save a copy

Select "Documents" in the left shortcuts area.
Then double click on a listed directory (it does not matter which one).
Select back the "Documents" directory by clicking on the corresponding button on the top directory navigation bar (at the right of "Save in the directory :" or something like that since my language is French)
Then click on the bottom right "Save" button.

Expected behavior : saving the file in the "Documents" directory.
Observed behavior : Changes the directory to the one previously selected in "Documents".

I suppose this is a bug and not a feature. Isn't it ?

I think a possible solution might be to move the focus away from the main selection window when the navigation bar is used?
