The problem was, "last directory used" doesn't apply: it was the first
occurrence of that dialog, for the newly-installed instance of Squeak.
But it was opening with an old location, not the install dir where I'd
just saved an image.

Ian sent me this, off-list:

> It's obviously not the expected behaviour. Are you sure you've tried the
latest installer officially available? I made sure proper directories are
passed on on the last one, Squeak 4.1 rc1.

and it turns out I was using an earlier version of the installer; when
I uninstalled it and tried again with the latest, and the image-chooser
dialog behavior is now as expected.
