Shutter default save directory is root

Bug Description

Binary package hint: shutter

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 64bit alpha2.

Shutter's default save directory is the root "/" partition, which produces "Error while saving the image 'Desk 1_001.jpeg' Permission denied" This is easily fixed by changing the save location in Preferences, but it's still a bug.

Confirmed it because I saw similar behaviour; it defaulted to trying to save it in
/home/ rather than /home/username
