attached you find patches to allow the File Chooser to keep the initial/
suggested name-portion in the pathname of a file to be saved, when
changing directories in the process.
The patch is essentialy the same, that i submitted in October 2010 for
FLTK 2.0 (see below), using the Dillo 2.x web-browser then. And which
was seemingly incorporated sometime later. (At least the description at
#a970cca52004fca5a0d9f9b8261bc429b suggests this)

Several years ago i upgraded to Dillo 3.0.x, which had switched to FLTK
1.3. This urged me (with a little delay though ;) to adapt the old patch
to FLTK 1.3.4-2. Since the affected files in 1.3.5 are identical (modulo
versioning tags) to the corresponding ones in 1.3.4-2, this patch also
fits 1.3.5.  Version 1.4 got its own (version of this) patch.

kind regards

Thanks for the patches.

Note: Looking at the patches I found some embedded comments and some code formatting issues. I created a new patch for FLTK 1.4 (based on commit 357dad1e5, uploaded as 'FileChooser.1.4.0_357dad1e5.diff') w/o comments and some (probably not all) formatting fixes.

I'll also upload 'comments.txt' with all comments I found for reference.

I did not test or review the patch as such, i.e. for functionality, leaving this for others for now.
