Not sure why this is happening. I will try to reproduce the error and
see if it can be fixed
Thanks for the report

This is not a bug. If you do not enter a filename, the output will
always go to a temporary file. The output folder that yu can set in
the settings  is the folder to be used when you enter a filename
without a path (like "myfile.shp", but not "/home/myuser/myfile.shp"),
not the folder to use for temporary files.

Thanks again!
