Resolved in r198. Now there are 2 algs

True. Maybe it should be added

To fill the extent field you can use the extent of a layer, just by
clicking on the button on its right-hand side and selecting "use
layer/canvas" extent. There you can select a layer or even the extent
of the current map view :-) To do this you need to have the parameters
dialog not in table mode, but in the complete mode (this can be set in
the configuration, in the "general" group)

Hope this helps
