The filter was supposed to be used for restricting the files being
displayed using extensions (.gnc, .qif, .etc), but the gtk file
selection dialog doesn't dtrt with those, so it is currently
disabled. But when it works, providing a filter should disable
using the last file anyway.

But I will extend the api so you can have a particular file.
