The only way to do that would be to set the CSD to <Transient$TodayDir>
as the path used to save a text with only leafname is <CSD>.leafname
(tech. the filename is canonicalised and the OS uses the CSD when the
disc and directory name are missing).

It might be a better idea to open the save dialogue when there's no full
pathname available for a text, as the CSD could point anywhere.
