What version of KDE-4 are you using.  When asking a question such as 
this, it is a good idea to include that information.

I tried this in Trunk and it does still select Documents as the default.

IMO, this is a bug.  The function: "KGlobalSettings::downloadPath" has 
been added to KDELibs::KDEUI and it should be used.
