After updating from 2.4 to 2.6.168 my "Recently Used" list is static. It no longer changes to reflect the directories used to save files.
I have tried to solve the problem by doing a clean install by deleting the user/*.dat files to no avail.
Using WinXP 32bit.
Recently Used list has problems when the new style of the AutoDialogs Caption Button is used. So far we were unable to solve this issue - but you can turn this mode off in the Properties dialog.
I am relieved that the hotkey flicker/shutter problem - in Windows dialogs - has been solved with this update.
