The save dialog seems a bit confused here. For a program like M$ Word
you can choose the type to save as from the drop-down list (yes, I
know this is a little different as it affects the saved format too).
That extension is always added to the name you type, unless the name
entered already heas exactly that extension. The drop down list has
exactly one extension per entry. Having "*.patch; *.diff " as a
save-as type makes no sense because it cannot add both and it has no
way to choose which one of the two. That makes sense only in the
File-open dialog.

The simplest solution would be to drop the *.patch; *.diff altogether
and keep the existing *.* behaviour.

A nicer solution, but which needs more work would be to have separate
*.patch *.diff *.txt and *.* entries. For all but *.* the extension
would be added if the same extension is not there already. And it
would remember the last type used so the same type comes up next time.
