Description Tom Hall 2012-04-12 18:19:17 UTC
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
Build Identifier: 

If the document has a name specified (i.e. not "unnamed"), automatically fill this name in as the filename when saving for the first time.

This wish assumes that the user likes to save a document named, "Piggy Wiggies" as something similar, e.g. "Piggy Wiggies.kra". 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new document. Make sure to fill in the "Name" field with something other than the default, "unnamed".
2. Open the save dialog via menu > Save As.
Actual Results:  
Name field is empty.

Expected Results:  
Name field contains the document name (as a starting point for the filename).

Might have to truncate the document name if it is allowed more characters than filenames are (I don't know if this is the case).

Shouldn't take precedence over filename in subsequent saves, only applies for 1st save when there is no filename yet.

Do not set the url of the document based on the name

This leads to strange bugs because the url is set to
Pictures/name, but the document hasn't been saved yet.
