Clear local directory dropdown when connecting to new server in same tab

When you use one ftp server, the source file directories combo goes memorizing all the folders you navigate for transactions.
When you want to connect to another server, Filezilla gives you the option: "Abort current connection", but the problem is that Filezilla keeps some directories used in the previous server connection in the combo, creating risk of SERIOUS DAMAGE, if someone takes for instance an index.php from a different website and paste over another index.php from another site. I say that because in my machine I have source files for about 10 different websites. This behaviour of Filezilla is very dangerous and I tasted this problem myself... did this fault once =D but noticed instantly and corrected! The luck is that I had the original file for the wrongly ovewrited website index... What about if I didn't have the original source ??? You must change it this way: If someone aborts one connection to connect to a new server, source files combo MUST be cleared!!!
