#1101: New filenames for tmp files for editing are confusing

 Since this new build, when downloading files to a temporary directory for
 opening them up in a browser, Cyberduck saves the entire remote path in
 the filename, converting slashes to underscores. I guess that this was
 done to prevent name conflicts among files that have the same name but are
 in different directories, which, in the previous builds, were being
 downloaded as "filename-N.extension". However, this is quite confusing -
 if your remote path is long, all you see in the file list in most editors
 (I use Smultron) is the first part of the temporary path, which is the
 same for all the files!

 It would be much better to solve the potential conflict by recreating a
 directory tree inside the temporary directory (one dir per server and then
 recreating the remote path from root) and putting each file in the correct
 directory without changing the name.

 At least, that what I'd prefer - I'm thinking about reverting back to the
 last build because this new one is really a problem. If other people
 prefer the new approach, perhaps it could be a configuration setting?

 Thanks a lot for your work,
