quite few users commented problems with GtkFileChooser dialog's
"Recently used" "feature" in that bug report, nothing happened so far.

Note, it's a revert of (useful) code _removal_ from Evolution.

Matthew decided to "outsource" the usability to GtkFileChooser, but it's
not ready yet for our needs (to open in previously used folder), thus I
want to return back functionality users are used to in Evolution. It's
very rare to attach the same file multiple times, you usually want to
add more files from the same folder. Currently, you are presented with
"Recently used" items, which is useless, then you need mouse to get to
your album folder, which can be anywhere. I hope you can imagine the
pain for users.

As an example, I cannot imagine loosing option for "Always ask me where
to save files" from FireFox, neither if it would always open in other
than previously used folder. It would be a deal breaker for me.
