The question is perfectly understandable, and I agree, the current
behavior doesn't seem logical from here, either.  If I've set the default
location, I want it to be the default, not something I have to select to
get, or it rather defeats the purpose.

You are correct, this /should/ be examined before 1.0 stable, if not
before rc-1.  In fact, I was going to bug it but then switched things
around a bit and hadn't set a new default so I forgot about it.  I'd
suggest bugging it, if you can't find a bug already entered for it.  As
usual when I suggest such things, post the bug number or URL here and I'll
comment on it too, here, 100% agreeing.

As for your wife, she apparently doesn't think you're /always/ wrong, or
you'd be calling her your ex-wife! =8^)  In fact, give her current status,
at least at one point she apparently considered you so right you were "Mr.
Right!" =8^)  As I said, the fact that said status remains, indicates
that's not /entirely/ changed, at least.  =8^)
