Original pathname and WMF resolution

What does the option this option do: "For 'Save as', use the original pathname the first time". The way I understand it, it should go to the directory of the currently open file, which is what I want. But it does not do that. I don't get the meaning of "first time".

Re: Closing on double-click and Esc

Alright, I can get used to it, and open two instances of XnView instead.

Closing on double-click and Esc

Is there a way of disabling closing of the current file on double-clicking its tab and pressing Esc? I often accidentally closing open files in some situations.
