Gnome Ars reviews GNOME 2.22, and concludes: "In version 2.22 GNOME continues to provide a high level of performance, functionality, and ease of use that contributes significantly to the viability of Linux on the desktop. Despite the numerous advances that are being made in GNOME technologies, there are still a few notable places where GNOME falls short of both open and proprietary competitors. GNOME application file dialogs, for instance, still lack basic support for file management operations such as rename and delete and don't provide support for viewing multiple file thumbnails."

OS X does at least have the ability to create a new folder in a save dialogue.
The file dialogue should then do what it needs to do to make that file path resolvable, including creating any folders that don't exist and giving the user the tools to achieve that.

Why all the ranting and flailing at empty air?

Why all the babbling about "resolving paths" instead of dealing with files (a concept that would be lost on most users, btw)?

There's a big "Create Folder" button in the Gnome save file dialog, right next to the breadcrumb buttons.
