To me, it looks like the *intended* behaviour though. Whether that behaviour 
is "correct" depends on your point of view, I guess. 

The "OK" button saves the changes and closes the dialog, next time you open 
the dialog, it's a fresh start. If you want to edit a previously created 
template, you have to select it in the list at the top first.  The "template 
title" field being empty might be taken as a hint that you are not working on 
the previously created "Template test" template...

No, the databases should be in your private data directory (not using MS-
Windows, so I don't know the exact location). Those *.xml and *.conf are 
configuration files.

See above.
