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.
