If I download a packed file, and then want to open, the gnome file system points me to my home directory. I want to go some other path, so I browse there and unpack it.

A moment later, another packed file download, and this time it points me to my home directory again, instead of the last location I unpacked the tar file.

Is it possible in gnome to make it remember the last location where you unpacked a file some moments ago?

Using ubuntu 10.04, fresh install.

There is a bug and a patch submitted, but unfortunately the patch has been sitting there idle for almost two years.
