I found it rather annoying that the filechooser opened to Documents by 
default, so I changed my Docuemnts folder to Document.  I use my $HOME 
folder much more than Documents.  This behaviour should be able to be 
adjusted through GNOME, so you can choose your default folder.  It 
doesn't make sense to hardcode a certain directory as the default.
