In my case, I keep all photos on a large external drive to conserve
space in my home directory, and import only the thumbnails into f-spot,
so I must remember to uncheck this box each time, or it copies over the
full jpgs to home/tim/Photos.  This would quickly wipe out my free
space, and needlessly make a duplicate of each photo (I already keep
backups on another system).  So in my case, as with Vincenzo, it is a
feature I don't like.
