I know, but having the correct filename for the screenshot in the database and 
then constructing it from the directory name is just wrong, it's either 
useless construction, or useless data saved.

Sure, but it works against the meaning of automatic. If there are entries in 
both places (which should happen either, but it happens), then manual action 
is needed of course, but if there is a naming sheme, naming the files right 
should be most if not all that needs to be done.

Beside the fact that I would have to change theme for entering that stuff, as 
Terra doesn't show this field.
