Summary0002128: Starting new extension project in gnome-inform7 results in improper file naming/structure
DescriptionWhen a new extension project is created, the interface asks for a location to save the project. Assume that the normal "Projects" folder is chosen.

The source editor window is shown as expected. When File/Save is chosen, the user is again prompted for a location to save the file. The "Projects" folder is shown and a default filename of "ProjectName.i7x" is shown. Assume that the Save button is clicked without changing anything.

A new folder "ProjectName.i7x" is created in the "Projects" directory. This folder (which has a name that would be expected for the source file) will be empty. A different new file named "ProjectName.i7x.inform" is created in the "Projects" directory. This file (which has a name that would be expected for the containing folder) will contain the extension source code.

Note that both created items are placed in the same directory level of "Projects"; the source file is not placed in the created directory.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Any source code will do. Follow the steps in the description to see the behavior.
Additional InformationThis was observed under Ubuntu 15.10 and also under Linux Mint 19.x based on Ubuntu 18.04. The latter was using the non-standard package found at https://github.com/interactivefiction/gnome-inform7-builds/tree/stable, [^] but the behavior is also seen using the original package under Ubuntu 15.10.
