Do you guys consider this a Bug? I do



It is confusing to people when they see in the Nautilus SidePane how 
things are categorized by DEVICES, COMPUTER, NETWORK only to be 
confronted with a lack of the same categorization/demarcation when 
they are presented with a Save-As dialog box. This results in users not 
fully understanding where something is going to be saved.

The Save-As dialog box should use the same categorization/demarcation
 paradigm as the Nautilus SidePane. For example, look at the two 
screenshots I have attached. In the "Nautilus SidePane" screenshot, you 
can see that HOME, DESKTOP, and FILE SYSTEM are all located under the 
COMPUTER heading. This clearly communicates that these folders are 
located on the user's computer. Now look at the "Save-As dialog 
SidePane". Notice how the USER, DESKTOP, and FILE SYSTEM folders are 
located where the DEVICES are listed? This is confusing. These folders 
are located on the COMPUTER and yet they are being listed along with 
DEVICES. The Save-As dialog box layout should match Nautilus' SidePane 
layout. That is, USER, DESKTOP, and FILE SYSTEM should be moved below 
the "DEVICES section" so they are listed together with the other folders
 located on the user's computer.
