I have attached a minor patch that does :

o [Zenmap] Consider a couple ideas from Norris Carden
 - remember last save and/or open location for new saves and/or opens
 - default save location option

"default save location option" seems a bit vague.I assumed it means
loading the remembered location into the dialog box.I stored the
previous location in a file prev_dir.conf in plain text.I thought
pickle and marshal aren't safe enough.Is there a better way to do

Thanks for giving this your attention.

Where is the prev_dir.conf file created? In the current directory? I
don't like adding new configuration files, but if we do they should go
in ~/prev_dir.conf like the others. See zenmapCore/Paths.py for some
code dealing with this.

Instead of having references to prev_dir.conf in different places in the
code, how about extending one or more of the classes in
zenmapGUI/FileChoosers.py? You could have one that is instantiated with
information needed to store its current directory, and then store it
whenever a file is saved.
