Screen shot of saved search subfolder of a saved search folder

"Save As Search Folder" generates "saved search subfolder" of an existent "saved search folder".

[ Build id ]
> Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv: Gecko/20090713 Shredder/3.0b3pre

[ Steps to reproduce ]

1. Select a saved search folder (VF-01)
2. Edit/Find/Search Messages
3. Execute search
4. Save As Search Folder
   => "Create as a subfolder of: VF-01" is set by Tb
5. Enter name (VF-01-01), change some fields, OK
   => VF-01-01 is created as subfolder of saved search folder of VF-01

I think it's been doing this for a long time.  saved search location defaults to the currently selected folder, doesn't matter what type of folder it is. 
In TB2 does it do the same thing, or default to the account's root?

Tb set account's root in "Create as a subfolder of:" when saved search folder is currently selected.

"ordinal subfolder of an existent saved search folder" shouldn't be permitted.
But I think "saved search subfolder of an existent saved search folder" is convenient for organizing of virtual folders. As seen in comment #0, it works with no problem in ordinal situation. (rename of parent is probably dangerous...)

Wayne Mery, bug summary is better to be changed? :-)
  There is no other UI than "Save As Search Folder" to create "search subfolder"
  of an existent "search folder".
