​I'm on CentOS 6.7 with gnome 2. Either the default dialogs or unchecking
and using the gnome2 version for Save As... works correctly for me.

ALL Linux users should install the freedesktop menus since gnome and kde
both use this interface. This is covered in our installation instructions:

Other desktop interfaces may not work correctly with this, however.
