This refers to GUI (GTK) of mplayer (default skin) - its file dialog.

Most uses of mplayer is click on *.avi (or whatever movie file) in your favorite filemanager and than loading subtitles, which are in 99% cases in the SAME DIRECTORY as movie.

Problem with gmplayer is that the dialog for opening subtitles (or external audiotrack etc.) just opens set to your home directory :(.

And user than have to go through the filesystem tree again for subtitles file (usuly something like /mnt/media/movies/movie_name/

That is lots of redundant mouse clicks and searching and it is very frustrating do this all over again for every movie.

So simple solution is to open dialog contains current directory (which is directory with film) as first item.
