OSM plugin: layers in temp folders and qgis messages when opening a project that includes osm data

When you add to a project OSM data, the osm files are placed in tmp/temp folders. If you save the project and reopen it (on both linux and windows), causes qgis to ask about the missing layers.
If the osm layers are placed in tmp/temp folders on purpose then they should not be saved into the project file. If not, then it should be asked where to save the osm data when downloading it.
I would obviously prefer the second option... :)

In current dev version (qgis 1.7.0 1d66171f (SVN r14979)) the default is still a temp file, see:
However, a dialog offers you to change the path to save your osm data, and it works.
The problem still exist when you save the qgis project and want to reopen it. For instance, it will try to open the fowllowing file but does not know how to handle it:
