Recent Files not showing up under Ubuntu

Running 8.04 and Blender 2.47 although I saw this on 2.46 as well.

The recent files list on my machine never seems to get populated. It works on Windows, I was expecting it to work in a similar fashion.

All of the files that I am working with are on a shared partition, and I’m mounting it under /media/Projects (I don’t know why that would make a difference, but I thought I would throw it in just in case).

I’m still a Linux rookie, so there could very well be something fundamental that I am missing.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Pilot Error

I have been trying out Linux and how it behaves, and have opened lots of files, but have never saved any of them.

The recent files list appears to be a list of recent saves, not a list of recent loads.
