I have a strange behaviour while printing to PDF. I am not very sure when it started to do but I got it on several computers with 12.10 and 13.04 flavors.

When I print to PDF file in a different folder than the default home, by selecting the folder 'Save in folder' of the print dialog box, whatever which folder I select, the save is always made in my home folder.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong ? In the first case if anyone could confirm it here, I would be more confident for filling a bug report, in second case anybody could point me how to do would be great !

Tks for help

You can learn how to file a bug report from the Ubuntu Documentation Reporting Bugs wiki. – karel May 27 '13 at 5:47
I am using Gnome-3 and now I just try a print to pdf in Gnome classic and there is no problem there, so maybe it is a Gnome-3 specific bug ? – CedSha May 27 '13 at 5:50
Same thing happens to me on 13.04. If you filed a bug, would you mind linking to it? – Neal P Aug 25 '13 at 22:45
