 This may be an issue with the Journal/DS interaction rather than a pure
 Browse.xo issue.

 On 0.84.9 with Browse-108

  - from the commandline, create a file, for example a patch: foo.patch

  - use copy-to-journal to add it to the journal -- or copy it to a mounted
 USB disk

  - open Browse, login to dev.sugarlabs.org

  - try to upload the patch to a bug

 Expected: preserved filename (or titlename), reasonable extension.
 Something similar to what we do when copying from the DS to an external
 USB disk.

 Actual result: tmpXYZ1234

 There are two reasons why this is important:

  - I do use Sugar to develop Sugar -- want to be able to upload patches

  - Webapps do rely on the names and extensions provided (with due care of
 sanity-cleanup of spurious chars). This affects our friendly Moodle, heart
 of the XS.
